What is a 4-H Community Club?

A 4-H Community Club is made up of 5 or more youth, guided by a certified adult 4-H volunteer leader and/or 4-H Educator, who meet regularly in an inclusive community space. Youth are elected to guide the activities of the club and all youth members are given opportunities to make decisions and share their ideas. 4-H Community Clubs are excellent ways for youth to gain confidence and leadership skills, meet new friends and participate in new experiences, and becoming more independent and resilient.


4-H Clubs are fun, regular gatherings where youth can:

  • Make friends

  • Find help exploring topics and projects they are interested in.

  • Find leadership opportunities

  • Take part in culturally-specific activities and other activities and events

Clubs offer:

  • Small-group learning
  • Caring adult volunteer leaders who are screened, trained and guided by local UW-Extension staff
  • Grounding in research-backed curriculum and best practices for nonformal learning
  • Support to help you dive deep into project learning

What happens in clubs? Will my friends be there?

Anyone in kindergarten through one year past high school can join a 4-H club. Youngsters in kindergarten through second grade join as Cloverbuds. Clubs may meet after school, in the evening or on the weekend. You may meet people you already know or a whole new set of friends.

Who manages clubs? Can I be a club leader?

Leading a club is one very important role that an adult volunteer can play. Club leaders don’t work alone! All volunteers are screened, receive training & ongoing support from local Extension staff and have access to materials. Call Anne Williams, Oneida County 4-H Educator, at 715-365-2750 or email apwilliams@wisc.edu to find out how you can start a 4-H club or becoming a 4-H adult volunteer leader.
