Clubs


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.
