4-H Career Explorations Update: registration, scholarships, chaperones

We’re excited to see Career Explorations registrations coming in! We have 107 people registered from 26 counties and there are still spots available in all programs. Registration will be open until June 1 or programs fill.


Scholarship requests were due by May 1. We’ve sent notifications to each youth who has requested a scholarship and their 4-H Educator letting them know the status of their awards.


Also, a reminder that information about background checks and preparing chaperones for Career Explorations is on the event page under “Chaperones.” In addition to Cornell Cooperative Extension's volunteer policy procedures, volunteer chaperones at 4-H Career Explorations need to be cleared through Cornell University's Children and Youth Safety Policy. According to Cornell University's policy, all adult chaperones (staff and volunteers) need to have a background check and complete CRS 2101 – Protecting Children: Identifying and Reporting Sexual Misconduct course in CULearn (directions for accessing course). We'll be sharing more training and support resources for preparing to chaperone at Career Explorations soon.


As always, please contact Alexa with questions and feedback. Thank you!
