Club Information

4- H clubs usually meet in the evenings or on weekends and offer self-chosen multiple learning experiences and activities. The youth officers run the meetings, typically using parliamentary procedure.

All 4-H clubs must be chartered, which includes having an approved constitution and bylaws. The 4-H charter allows clubs to use the 4-H name and emblem, raise funds in the name of 4-H, and carry out the 4-H educational program.

Individual youth and adult volunteers must complete the required 4-H enrollment process and pay the annual 4-H program fees, which includes accident and sickness insurance coverage.
