Start a 4-H Club
Interested in Starting a 4-H Community Club?
There are two types of 4-H clubs that can be created within your community, 4-H community clubs and 4-H community spin clubs. Both of these types of clubs allow 4-H members, from all different avenues in our communities, to participate in 4-H experiential learning projects and club activities as well as county, state, and even national 4-H events.
What are the requirements to start a 4-H Community Club or Community Spin Club?
- Meet with a 4-H program representative or academic
- 5 Youth Members from 3 Families, minimum
- 2 Approved Adult Volunteers, with completed screenings
- Offer at least 1 Project (subject) for a minimum of six hours
What are the differences between a regular 4-H Community Club and a Community Spin Club?
4-H Community Clubs
- Can have their own bank accounts
- Have separate business meetings (general meetings) from project meetings
- Are run by a youth led board (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, etc)
- Youth vote on club finances and procedures, like their Bylaws
