The purpose of a 4-H club is to provide positive youth development experiences to
meet the needs of young people through opportunities tied to the Land Grant
University knowledge base. Clubs are organized throughout the community and sometimes in schools. They typically meet after school hours. Some clubs focus on one project, while others focus on multiple projects depending on the members’ interests. Club meetings are led by youth members who hold leadership positions and are supported by one or more
adult volunteer. Club meetings typically take place once a month in a
centralized location such as a school cafeteria, community center, church or
home. Activities during these meetings may include hands on learning activities,
community service projects, and fundraisers. Club membership is not required in
order to participate in some 4-H programs offered throughout the year.
