VIP Training Zooms for New 4-H Leaders
Becoming a 4-H Volunteer
Becoming a 4-H Volunteer includes four steps to ensure youth protection for 4-H members. These steps include:
- signing up as a volunteer in 4HOnline (which also starts the background check process)
- passing a background check
- doing an online module called Mandated Reporter training (through your 4-H online account)
- completing the Volunteer in Preparation training
Two dates for VIP Leader Training have been planned for (both of these sessions will be virtual via zoom):
- Friday, January 14 from 9-11 a.m.
- Monday, January 24 from 6-8 p.m.

Projects in a Box
- If anybody would like help setting up a first virtual meeting I would be happy to help, just email me at email@example.com. If there is literature or handouts we could help distribute through mail from the Extension Office we are also happy to help make that happen.
Arts & Communications Activities:
4-H offers a variety of projects and activities for members to pursue their individual interests and express their talents. Each spring Waupaca County hosts the 4-H Performing Arts Spectacular and Speaking Contest, which are opportunities that all members can take part in performing and showcasing their arts and communication interests. A statewide study revealed the impact of 4-H arts and communications programs which allow youth to gain communication and teamwork skills. Surveyed 4-H members shared that 4-H helped them improve their individual performance and creativity skills as well as gaining confidence in public speaking. 4-H alumni and older youth members will often reflect on their growth through public speaking experiences, demonstrations, holding officer positions, counselor opportunities, and emceeing events. These opportunities provide to be memorable occasions for members, while also possibly impacting their future career prospects. The Wisconsin State 4-H Website provides further information on statewide opportunities in the arts and communication project area.
