Kansas 4-H Tip Sheet

October 15, 2018

New YQCA Curriculum Available

Submitted by Lexie Hayes

The national, multi-species youth livestock quality assurance program, Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA), launched its second year of the program on October 1. Therefore, a new set of educational modules are now available for youth to complete. Extension Agents and Ag Teachers who requested to become certified to teach face-to-face classes should have received an email directly from the YQCA staff the first week of October.

Once the certification process is complete, approved instructors will receive the 2018-2019 curriculum and are welcome to begin teaching classes. Youth may complete the online training for $12/child, or participate in an instructor-led session for $3/child. A young person’s YQCA certification is valid for one year. The Kansas State Fair Grand Drive and KJLS will require all exhibitors to complete YQCA to be eligible to exhibit in the 2019 shows.
