One week remains for all 4-H Youth Development staff to complete the Safety of Minors online training through ULearn by May 1, 2015. Thank you to the many individuals who have completed this task already. If you have yet to complete it, you may access it through ULearn by searching for "Safety of Minors" in the search box. The training is ten minutes long and its completion will be reflected in your personal ULearn account.
We are pleased to share that YD Intranet resources have been updated to provide valuable resources for use in implementing the Safety of Minors policy. You may access resources for new and current volunteers on the YD Intranet through the volunteer systems page under volunteer training. Beginning on May 1, all new volunteers will complete the Safety of Minors training as part of their required orientation prior to being accepted as a 4-H volunteer. Current volunteers MUST complete the training by July 1, 2015 in order to be eligible to continue volunteering. There are a variety of ways that volunteers may complete the training including through 4HOnline, without logging in to 4HOnline through UMConnect, by attending a local face-to-face viewing session and signing the provided sign-in sheet, requesting a DVD recording of the training, or downloading a PDF transcript of the training.
Roll-out webinars for staff to better understand how the Center for Youth Development will implement the Safety of Minors policy will take place on Monday, April 27 from 1 - 2:30 p.m. and again on Tuesday, April 28 from 10 - 11:30 a.m. The sessions will be recorded for those who are unable to attend. To connect to the meeting, visit webex.umn.edu and enter session 741 140 166.
