4-H community clubs consist of youth in Kindergarten through one year beyond high school graduation (grade 12) coming together. Each club is unique because the members themselves decide which of the 40 or more projects and activities they want to do.
It’s as easy as 1-2-3! It takes a small group of 5 or more young people from at least two families and a minimum of two adults who are willing to work with them. Before the club becomes official, proper paperwork must be completed. The group works with the 4-H Youth Development Educator or 4-H Faculty Assistant to establish a meeting day, time, club name, and to start brainstorming the projects and activities the youth want to do. Support for this new club begins with the UW-Extension office, the Racine County 4-H Leader’s Association and the 1,100 members of Racine County 4-H.
To join an existing 4-H club:
You can join 4-H if you are in kindergarten through one year beyond high school graduation. Here’s what you need to do… First, select a 4-H Club to join. The existing clubs are listed in the attachement below along with information on where and when they meet. If one fits you, give the UW-Extension office a call and ask for more information. Second, call the club’s contact person and find out a little more about the club and its members. Most 4-H members join in the fall, but many clubs enroll new members later. Third, attend the 4-H club meeting with your parents and fill out and complete a 4-H enrollment form, select your project(s) and get ready to discover what 4-H is all about.
