What are the expectations of 4-H Club members?

In general, all 4-H club members are expected to meet the following standards each year:

  • Attend at least 70 percent of regular club meetings.
  • Complete a 4-H project, doing one's own work with minimal assistance from parents or others.
  • Give a club, community, or county 4-H presentation.
  • Participate in a minimum of 1 community service project.

These are the minimum expectations. Each club may have additional requirements. All club rules and policies should be contained in its club constitution. To join a 4-H club or find out more about what 4-H has to offer, contact or visit the Extension Office in the county where you live.

Who leads a 4-H Club?

Each club is led by a 4-H Volunteer Leader(s). 4-H has a responsibility to provide a safe and healthy environment for youth. Therefore, all 4-H volunteers complete a screening and orientation process before being appointed. To register to be a 4-H volunteer, complete a 4-H Volunteer Registration Form (PDF) and the Extension Volunteer Status Form (PDF) (authorizing background and references check). Please contact your County Extension 4-H Office for more information on the needs for 4-H volunteers where you live.
