Joining a club is a great way to get involved in 4-H. 4-H clubs have regular meetings and officers, just like any other youth organization. You will get a chance to meet other kids, learn leadership skills, go on trips, have parties, and be part of special activities and projects. Each youth member (except Clover Kids) will be assessed a $25 fee. (There will be a $5 discount for enrollments that are processed before October 31st. In a 4-H Club, you can:
- Learn about making decisions with a group.
- Develop skills in expressing your ideas and speaking before a group.
- Try new ideas and ways of doing things.
- Develop citizenship and leadership skills.
- Find out about special things you’re interested in, like photography, the environment, animals, food and nutrition, or public speaking.
- Develop self-confidence.
- Build a sense of pride in yourself and your club.
- Learn to be part of a team to get things done.
