4-H Clubs

Placer County 4-H Club List

4-H Community Clubs are found throughout the county and offer the opportunity for hands-on learning for children ages 5 to 19.  4-H Clubs are planned and led by both adult volunteers and youth members. 

To locate a club in your community, check out the 4-H Club map below. You may either click on the map marker for club details for each individual 4-H club and view their club contact, meeting date, time and location, and project offered or click on the club name in the left margin. 

Placer County 4-H has a large range of opportunities for youth to participate in on the local (club level), county, and state levels. First, youth enroll in a club that holds monthly meetings from 1 hour to 1.5 hours in length, then the youth have the opportunity to participate in as many or as few projects as they have an interest. Those project meetings vary in length depending on the subject matter.

  • If you still need assistance related to an individual club, please call the Club Leader and/or VEC of the club you are wanting to join. 
  • For questions regarding specific county programs and/or opportunities please contact the 4-H Community Education Specialist, at the UC Cooperative Extension 4-H Office (530) 889-7386.

4-H Club Meetings details

4-H Clubs usually meet once a month from September through May or June, in the evening or on a weekend for about an hour.  Youth members/officers typically run these meetings using parliamentary procedure.  There are many opportunities for all youth attending the meetings to develop confidence and leadership through public speaking and presentations. Please check with the club contact for more specific information on their schedule of meetings.

4-H Projects

A 4-H project is:

* Planned work in an area of interest to the 4-H member.
* Guided by a 4-H adult volunteer who is the project leader.
* Aimed at planned objectives that can be attained and measured.
* Summarized by some form of record keeping.
* A minimum of six hours of project instruction.

Projects help 4-H members find and nurture their spark or passion.  For additional information on how to help identify your spark and the 4-H project areas, click here.
4-H members enroll in at least one project each year.  New members are encouraged to join only one or two projects, to help gain experience and connect with members and volunteers.
