In Island County the primary way kids participate in 4-H is through clubs. In a club, youth from 5-19 are given the opportunity to run for office, practice leadership roles, raise and manage their club’s money, pitch in with community service efforts, go to the Island County Fair, and so much more.
Each club, with guidance from their adult leaders, determines how often they will meet, where and when they will meet, and how they organize their meetings.
When seeking a club to join, we recommend that you identify clubs that interest you, and visit their meetings, and then select the one(s) to apply for. Some clubs limit the number of members they accept at any given time, or establish a date after which they no long accept new members for the year. As with any group endeavor, it is important to make sure you feel comfortable with the group’s activities, personalities, and age levels.
To begin explore the current Island County 4H clubs.
When you have selected a club and are ready to join, fill in the application form. Once we receive your form we will contact you to help you begin your 4H journey.
There are many reasons why the club format is out of reach for some families. The primary one is the difficulty we all face in finding a schedule that matches our own! Participating as a Family 4H Club is a great way to have your children involved in 4H on your own timetable. To learn more fill in the application form. We’ll contact you shortly with more information.
WSU Extension has many resources that can support teachers in the classroom. Service Learning opportunities, in particular, can be energized via a wide range of connections WSU Extension can offer educators and their students. If you are interested in creating such an opportunity fill in the application form. We’ll contact you shortly with more information.
