Published on

Pamela Ardern, State 4-H Program Leader, presented this at CPSC's ATV Safety Summit Oct. 12, 2012. ATV Training: Reaching the Next Generation: My name is Pamela Ardern and I serve as the South Carolina State 4-H Program Leader - Clemson University Cooperative Extension. I have been with the university for 28 years and I'm currently working with others across the state to address ATV Safety. 4-H, the youth development program of the Land-Grant University system, has been directly involved in ATV safety education since the mid 1980’s. 4-H has partnered with the ATV Safety Institute and others to deliver sustainable community based education programs. These programs utilize the hands-on ASI RiderCourse, the online ASI E-Course, nationally developed 4-H ATV safety curriculum and other educational resources to train educators and volunteers to deliver ATV safety education to youth. 4-H ATV safety provides structured learning, encouragement and adult mentoring of youth, which plays a vital role in helping youth gain decision-making skills around risky behaviors and riding ATVs safely. 4-H is establishing cohesive and committed state-level teams and partnerships that can accomplish more than just one or two individuals or a single organization. By having large and diverse partnerships representing a wide array of interests, 4-H brings more perspectives to address ATV safety, provide more resources, generate more ideas, and create positive approaches.
