4-H Community Clubs in Oneida County

There is one active 4-H community club in Oneida County. The Northwoods Explorers 4-H Club meets from 6-7:30 p.m. every third Sunday of the month at the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Rhinelander. All youth in grades K-12 (public/private/homeschool) are welcome to attend these 4-H club gathering!

In a 4-H club, youth lead each gathering! Every youth member has an important leadership role, including as President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Reporter, Historian, Pledge Leader, Snack Helper, Recreation Leader and more! Club members vote on every decision the club makes – only youth get to vote! Club members also practice using basic parliamentary procedure, which is what many groups in the “real world,” such as government leaders and church leadership groups, use to make group decisions!

Youth club members are also very aware of their club’s budget – and each month they plan on how to use their money wisely, incorporating ways to help others, ways for club members to learn new things, and also ways they can have fun together! The Northwoods Explorers 4-H Club is geared toward youth seeking leadership, civic engagement, and service learning experience.

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, and meets 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, becoming more independent and resilient.
