“Adult 4-H volunteers lead five or more participants in hands-on projects teaching life skills and how much fun group activities can be,” Gaffney says. “4-H youths across the county, state, and nation form a network of 4-Hers and are encouraged to participate in 4-H fairs, public speaking opportunities, and Leadership Conferences as end results of all their learning.”
Parents can check out 4-H club activities here. They can then set up a family 4-H profile with each child as a “new member”. Once registered, they will get an email confirmation with information for upcoming meeting dates, club location, and time and club leaders’ contact.
Gaffney says residents can also help start a 4-H club around a specific interest. Anyone wishing to do that should use this link to fill out a form. The local office will reach out to you about the next Club Leader Orientation dates.
