What is a Community Club?

A Community 4-H club is an organized group of at least five youth from three different families with two 4-H appointed adult volunteers. Members and leaders meet regularly and have a planned program that is carried out through all or most of the year.

The purpose of a 4-H Club is to promote positive youth development through offering educational activities that enable youth to reach their full potential as competent, confident, leaders of character who contribute and are connected to their communities. A 4-H Club is a structured environment that emphasizes the four essential elements include belonging (caring relationships), independence (leadership opportunities), mastery (constructive learning experiences), and generosity (service to communities).

All 4-H clubs must be chartered, which includes having an approved constitution and bylaws. The 4-H charter allows clubs to use the 4-H name and emblem, raise funds in the name of 4-H, and carry out the 4-H educational program. Most 4-H clubs meet monthly from September through August.
