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 for participation in some 4-H
programs that are offered throughout the state.
