Each year several youth are not able to get the tractor safety education, training, and certification needed to work on Oregon farms and ranches. This is due to a lack of Community Lead Instructors. If you are over 21 years of age, interested in volunteering with the OSU Extension Service, and willing to invest in 12 hours of training, you can help provide the needed training in your communities. Please contact Andrea Leao to obtain more information about becoming an NSTMOP Community Lead Instructor (part of the Oregon’s 4-H Tractor Safety, Education, Training, and Certification Program).
