To be confirmed as an adult volunteer, you need to do two sets of trainings:

  1. Read 5 documents about COVID safety. Go to: to find the 5 documents in the gold box on the right hand side of the page. Read through them (won’t take long).
  2. Take a short survey to certify that you have read the documents and thus completed safety training: For more resources, see
  3. Complete and submit online via the 4-H Activity Approval Request – at least 4-6 weeks prior to the activity date. Include a 4-H Activity Roster, if possible. We must receive approval prior to 4-H activities from 4-H Staff. Any unauthorized 4-H activity will not be covered by 4-H insurance and the host(s) will be held responsible for any subsequent outcomes.

B. Standard Volunteer trainings – Reporting Child Abuse & Neglect Acknowledgement course on Campus Extension

Note: This process is only for volunteers that were “Active” in 4HOnline during the 2019-2020 4-H year.  If the volunteer was not active during 2020-2021, they will need to complete the process for NEW Volunteers.

  • Go to and log in.
  • Either search for the course above, or click on “4H and Youth”, then “4H: California”, and the course will be the first one in the list that appears. The enrollment key is still “Alameda”.
  • Go through the course and take the quiz at the end.
  • Once back on your home page, you should see a certificate on the bottom. Download it and save, just in case! The county should get notified that you completed the course, but you never know.
