All Adults serving as Chaperones in the Dormitories must complete a Child Protection Training Course.
The Texas A&M University System’s Child Protection Training was developed for system employees and volunteers working directly with youth through camps and programs. The objectives of the training are to teach warning signs of child sexual abuse and molestation, different forms of child abuse, types of sexual offenders and their strategies, how to respond and report cases of abuse, and strategies for maintaining a safe environment for youth. An individual is required to complete the training every two years.
4-H Adult Volunteers registered on 4-H Connect will complete the training in 4-H Connect, under the “training” tab.
All other volunteers (non 4-H, non AgriLife Extension) must complete the Child Protection Training on-line course. There is no fee to register. Please complete this training before attending the camp/retreat. Upon completion of the on-line module, the 4-H Center will receive an electronic notification verifying your successful completion of the course.
Please contact the 4-H Conference Center if you have any questions or need additional information.
