An Extension Pledge: Keeping Youth Safe

All 4-H and University of Illinois Extension volunteers who work with youth are required to complete the An Extension Pledge: Keeping Youth Safe course as part of their volunteer commitment to the University of Illinois. We hope that by completing this training, you will know what to do when you are acting as an Extension volunteer and you suspect a child is being abused or neglected. This training is part of the University of Illinois Abuse and Neglect Child Reporting Act (ANCRA).
