Requirements for recording youth members' images
Cyber safety is critical and a shared responsibility of 4-H staff, volunteers, parents and members. As the California 4-H YDP expands the delivery of 4-H learning in virtual environments, ensuring the safety of our youth members is critically important.
As such, guidance has been developed for UC ANR 4-H Staff, 4-H Adult Volunteers and Teen Volunteer leaders to use when planning to record Virtual 4-H hosted educational experiences with images of youth participants.
This guidance document includes:
- Requirements for every virtual meeting
- Recording live virtual 4-H activities containing youth images
- Requirements before recording youth images in virtual 4-H activities
- Requirements for pre-recorded instructional videos
- Creating registration pages for virtual 4-H activities
For use when volunteers plan to record images during a virtual activity.
4-H Adult Helper in Virtual Learning Spaces
As a result of COVID-19 and restrictions to gathering in person, 4-H has moved many educational activities into virtual learning spaces.
In response to the unique needs of these learning environments, and to uphold 4-H youth protection and adult supervision, a designated role of Certified 4-H Adult Helper has been created.
A Certified 4-H Adult Helper assists 4-H Adult Volunteers during virtual activities in breakout rooms. They ensure the safety of members by adding a protective factor to prevent one-on-one interactions between youth and adults.
For adults who need to become a Certified 4-H Adult Helper, please refer to this 4-H Adult Helper Certification Flowchart and FAQs for an overview of the process.
