Join a 4-H Club

Program Contact: Nancy Baskett, 4-H Program Coordinator

4-H is the youth development program of Washington State University. 4-H is where there’s fun in learning and hands-on experiential education. One of the ways youth can participate in 4-H is by joining a 4-H Club.

What is a 4-H Club?

Clubs are the foundation of the 4-H program. A club can be any size from a small group of kids from one neighborhood to a larger club consisting of youth from all over the county. Each club is led by volunteers in their community.

What happens in a 4-H Club?

A 4-H club usually concentrates on one or more projects such as gardening, woodworking, small animals, food and nutrition, photography, STEM, etc. 4-H members build leadership by electing officers and conducting their own business meetings; work together on community service activities; meet new friends; and most important, have lots of fun.

What age must you be to join a 4-H Club?

The following groups are identified for special programs and activity participation within the 4-H Youth Development Program (age based on age as of October 1 of the current program year):

 Cloverbud: Ages 5 – 7
 Junior: Ages 8 -10
 Intermediate: Ages 11 – 13
 Senior: Ages 14 – Less than 19

Cloverbuds are youth ages 5-7.  This is a non-competitive learning experience.

Juniors are youth 8 years and older and may enroll in many different 4-H projects. Members of this age may exhibit their completed work to be judged for awards.

Intermediate and senior 4-H members also have special opportunities, such as participating in Know your Government, WSU Teen Conference, and the King County Teen Leaders of Tomorrow Club.

Youth may stay in 4-H until his/her 19th birthday (must be before October 1 of the current 4-H year). Youth older than 19 and enrolled in special education classes may belong to 4-H with the approval of the county 4-H Faculty.

How do you join a 4-H Club?

Look at our Open Clubs list – see if there are clubs in your area you want to call or visit.  Some clubs may be full and not taking new members at this time.

If there is not a club available in your area, we would love to help you start a new 4-H club in your community. All you need is an adult volunteer who likes to work with youth, and five kids from three families. We will provide support, training, curricula and assistance for your club to be fun, educational, and successful.
