4-H clubs are groups of youth and volunteers who meet on a regular basis, usually monthly.  Meetings give youth opportunities to share project work, plan community service activities and practice running meetings. 

Each member must select a club to join.  Families are encouraged to explore different clubs and are not required to stay with a club if meeting times, goals, and/or membership requirements do not meet expectations.  However, a primary club should be selected for the year no later than November 1st of the current year or within two months of enrollment (whichever comes first).

Clubs are a great way to get to know peers, learn about other projects, participate in service learning projects, work as a team to make decisions,  understand how to run a business meeting and hold an office.  Clubs are youth driven with the support of adult leaders and parents. 

 

What to consider when selecting a club:

  • What day and time does the club meet?
  • Are you able to make the majority of meetings and be an active and contributing member?
  • Are you able to meet all the club membership requirements of that club? ex: attendance, record books, demonstrations
  • Is it a small club or a large club?
  • Are there members the same age as my children and/or are there members/leaders that have similar project interests that can help my child(ren) navigate their projects?
  • Is the club accepting new members?
  • When visiting the club, were the members engaged in the decision making and leadership of the club or was it more driven by the adults in the room?
  • How can I/we as parents, help this club flourish? (ex: help lead a project, bring snacks, plan recreation, provide meeting space, etc)
