2022 Special Interest (SPIN) Clubs

WSU Extension has received ARPA funding from Pierce County to build back 4-H clubs which have decreased in participation due to the pandemic. WSU staff will offer short-term project classes that will pique youth and parents’ interest in starting a new Pierce County 4-H club or joining an existing club.

What is a SPIN Club

These programs would focus on one specific project and share what it is like to be in a 4-H Club.  Short-term projects can be on any topic of youth interest, such as gardening, art, science based, photography, Minecraft, podcasting, drones, robotics, game making, and more.  Plans are flexible, but most programs will offer a once-a-week session, from 1.5 to 2 hours per session, lasting 6 to 8 weeks. After the program, parents and youth will be recruited to start a new club or join an existing club. Clubs generally meet once per month.

Employment

Washington State University Pierce County Extension will be hiring multiple part time jobs, in support of youth development.  Social Media Coordinators, International Exchange program assistants, military youth program support on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, and short term youth club leaders.  Positions range from $18 to $25 per hour.  Positions will be filled though out 2022 as needed.
