National 4-H Council's 4-H Community ATV Safety Program is hosting a series of regional workshops on ATV safety.  The purpose of the workshops is to train interested youth-adult teams on ATV safety and youth development and help participants develop plans to implement safety programs at the local level. Workshop time will be dedicated to youth-adult partnership training, community development strategies, and developing plans for local ATV safety programs.  In order to carry out the plans developed at the workshops, teams selected to attend the workshops will be eligible to apply for grants to implement local ATV safety initiatives.

Three regional National 4-H Community ATV Safety Workshops will be held this spring.  The ATV Safety Workshops will be held April 5-8 in Brandon, MS; May 17-20 in Spokane, WA; and May 31-June 3 in Ogden, UT.

National 4-H Council will pay all lodging and on-site costs for those applicants selected to attend the workshops.  A travel stipend will be provided to participating teams to help offset part of the cost of transportation to and from the workshops.
