4-H Risk Management Resources

Risk is the uncertainty about a future event that threatens your organization’s ability to accomplish its mission. It is the many unexpected things that can happen to the participants, the spectators, the properties, and the reputation of 4-H.

Risk management is the process used to protect assets by minimizing the potential for negative outcomes. It means the 4-H club, group, or planning committee anticipates potential risks as the activity is planned and decides to manage these risks.

The Risk Management Checklist is a useful tool for you to identify and minimize risk as you plan your event.
