4-H Administrator Interviewed for Newspaper Report

Lisa Phelps, University of Maine Cooperative Extension educator and the administrator of UMaine Extension’s 4-H programming, was interviewed for a Portland Press Herald story about how youth organizations screen adult volunteers in order to protect children. Phelps said background checks for 4-H clubs are done through UMaine’s Human Resources Department and 4-H holds the majority of its meetings in public places rather than at volunteers’ homes.
