All 4-H Chartered clubs and groups need to have at least one adult volunteer attend Annual Volunteer Training. All adults and youth leaders are encouraged to attend.
This year the state Annual Leader Training will focus on diversity and inclusion and the need to ensure that all young people and adults feel welcome and like they belong in the program. The training, “All Together, Not All the Same” is based on a volunteer training that was developed by colleagues in Minnesota. We have adapted the training for volunteers in Wisconsin. The training is about 90 minutes.
Participants will explore the diversity that exists in their community, recognize their own cultural lens and how it impacts the way they relate to others. Participants will also learn tools and strategies for working across difference in 4-H.
The training will be offered three separate times to allow for various schedules: Thurs, Nov 29, 2018, 1:00 & 6:00 pm; Wed, Jan 30, 2019, 6:00 pm at the Extension office. You must register one week prior to the session you will be attending.
If you have any questions, please contact the Fond du Lac County Extension office at 920-929-3170.
Requests for reasonable accommodations for disabilities or limitations should be made prior to the date of the program or activity for which it is needed. Please do so as early as possible prior to the program or activity so that proper arrangements can be made. Requests are kept confidential.
One of the requirements of a 4-H Club is to have youth involvement in leadership and decision-making. As a club office you will gain life skills of decision making, problem solving, responsibility, teamwork, leading groups, conflict resolution and more. Specific information about each officer role is available at the Wisconsin 4-H Community Club Central.

4-H Clubs and committees handling finances must have a 4-H charter, which must be renewed annually. The 4-H Charter formally recognizes a group’s affiliation with 4-H and grants the group permission to use the 4-H Name and Emblem. Complete details are available at the Wisconsin 4-H Community Club Central.
Many county, state, and national 4-H events require a health form to enable staff and volunteers to provide basic first aid, respond to medical emergencies, and provide accommodations for youth participants. Use this form for events, when required.
Permission needs to be granted from parents to use photos and comments of minors for UW-Extension reports, articles, and publications designed for educational, information, and promotional purposes.
Each member is covered by accident insurance. Clubs are billed for this annually. The American Income Life 4-H annual group accident policy covers individual 4-H clubs and country wide programs.
- Includes incurred medical and surgical treatment, X-rays, hospital confinement, and ambulance expense up to the maximum amount
- Covers dental services incurred within 52 weeks of the accident
- Provides a benefit if death occurs as a result of an accident within 100 days of the accident
- Covers loss of limbs up to a set amount
- Optional volunteer leader coverage available. – Clubs pay for this coverage if requested.
If a member is injured a claim form needs to be completed. The form is available at https://www.ailife.com/SpecialRiskDivision/Claims. Additionally, the adult in charge of the event should contact Tracy Keifenheim at the Extension office to get the form processed.
