Adding a Project in Your Club

Program Contact: Snohomish County 4-H Office
(425) 357-6044 •

In a perfect world, a 4-H club has a project leader for every project the youth in that club want to pursue.  Sometimes that isn’t the case.

If a member wants to add a project, and there is no existing or knowledgeable project leader for that project in your club, there are three options:

Good)  The youth can add a low-risk project independently, which means they would choose “Independent Member” as a secondary club in 4-H Online.  This option is not available for shooting sports, animal projects, motorcycles/ATVs, nor food preservation.

Members who have already enrolled will need to contact the 4-H office to have a club or project added.

Better)  A certified volunteer in your club, who is trained as a project leader (but not knowledgeable in the new project), could agree to be the designated project leader for the new project.  They would encourage the member(s) in the new project and keep them informed of county-wide project opportunities.  They would not necessarily provide instruction in the project.

Club leaders should contact the 4-H secretary to have a project added to their club’s menu in 4-H Online.

Best)  The member may also join a secondary club that has the desired project with a knowledgeable project leader.
