In York County, youth may choose one of two options to complete their YQCA requirements:
• Complete online training at https://yqca.learngrow.io. Cost is $12. For directions and more information, visit https://4h.unl.edu/yqca. Once training is complete, send completed certificates to Tanya Crawford, email@example.com or drop off at the Extension Office. If certificates are not submitted, we have no way of knowing if trainings have been completed. No certificate = No Certification
• Attend a face-to-face training. The 4-H member must sign up online and pay the YQCA Fee of $3.00 BEFORE the training. To sign up for the face to face training, you must go to https://learngrow.io . The training will cost $3 payable by credit or debit card on the website. We cannot take payments in person; all families must register and pay online. Then at the training, you will pay the Nebraska Extension – York County $5. You must sign in as proof of attendance. After the training, Tanya will go in and issue the certification.
Deadline to complete Youth for Quality Care of Animals (Quality Assurance) is June 15.
