4-H Club RISK Management Resources - for Leaders

Effective 4-H Clubs are Active 4-H groups. We want clubs to engage in a variety of activities and events. That's what makes 4-H fun, educational, and keeps youth excited about 4-H. We simply need to plan and conduct those activities in a safe manner. We need to ensure that risks to the 4-H program and the county extension districtsare minimized and properly managed. Most importantly, we need to ensure that our most critical assets - our 4-H members - are protected.
