4-H Charleston & Dorchester Clubs: 2015-2016

4-H Clubs - Members of an organized group of youth, led by an adult, with a planned program that is carried on throughout all or most of the year. 4-H clubs may meet in any location and typically have elected officers and a set of bylaws approved by the membership to govern the club. Standard 4-H clubs involve youth, ages 9-19, and focus on in depth learning of one or more projects. 4-H cloverbud clubs provide youth, ages 5-8, with an introduction to 4-H in a non-competitive environment. 4-H clubs might meet in the community, on military installations, in schools during school hours, as well as in school age child care settings after school. Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service offers its programs to people of all ages, regardless of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, marital or family status and is an equal opportunity employer.

Club meeting times and locations are variable. Contact the club leader to verify meeting details.
