About 4-H Clubs
A 4-H Club is a group of young people that meet regularly, usually once a month, to learn together and build friendships. Clubs are organized by adult volunteer club leaders and include family involvement throughout the year. Clubs provide a safe space for young people to learn, grow, and thrive through hands-on activities and projects, community service events, leadership opportunities, and more!
4-H members can be in one or as many clubs as they wish! Marion County has both general community-based clubs and special interest clubs (clubs that focus on specific projects as a group, such as dogs or gardening). If you are interested in a project or topic that has a special interest club, we recommend that you enroll in that club.
