4-H Participation Models

Community Club: A club is a group of youth who are led by volunteers. Clubs may be a single-project club, where the group only participates in one project area (like only dogs, or only cooking) or multi-project club, where the group participates in many project areas.

After School Program: If you’re in an afterschool program, we will work with your program sponsor to begin offering 4-H projects.

Independent Member: An independent program is offered for those youth who are not able to join a club. This program involves setting goals, quarterly meetings to discuss progress and end of the year activities. Independent Member Plan
