Commit to Kids

Starting in 2020 all new 4-H leaders must complete Commit to Kids training as a part of their onboarding process. Course instructions can be accessed here

Leaders who have previously completed Put the Child First are not required to complete Commit to Kids.

In future years all leaders will be required to complete a brief Commit to Kids refresher module on the same year that they update their Criminal Record Check. The refresher module has not yet been released.

New leaders who have already created an account through 4-H LEARNS who need to initiate or finish their Commit to Kids Training can follow the log-in instructions here.
