In 1992 the chapter network was formed to educate rural youth and their families about farm safety and health hazards at the local level. Today, over 110 chapters conduct farm safety presentations in 27 states and 4 Canadian provinces. Each year our chapters share farm safety with hundreds of thousands of youth and their families.
Chapters are affiliated with a number of organizations including: schools, FFA chapters, 4-H clubs, extension offices, Farm Bureau offices, insurance companies, as well as other businesses and organizations within the community. Becoming a chapter helps better serve their clients, membership, and local community by providing educational opportunities.
One of the truly unique elements of starting a chapter is the flexibility for leaders to match the purpose and objectives of the chapter to best address the specific needs of their local community.
Making an Impact
Thousands of volunteer hours are spent teaching children, youth, and farm families about farm safety each year. Since Farm Safety For Just Kids began, millions of kids have attended farm safety day camps, school programs, booths, health fairs, and family seminars conducted by our chapters. Farm Safety For Just Kids helps keep rural kids safe and healthy because of the efforts of thousands of volunteers.
