You, as a 4-H member, decide what you want to learn and do as you explore your project. This allows you to move at your own pace, and gives you important skills in setting and working toward goals. You don’t have to join a club to be in 4-H, but it is the most popular way to participate. Clubs generally meet twice a month on a regular schedule, which is determined by the members of the club. During meetings you learn how to accomplish the goals of your projects, how to run a business meeting, and how to do demonstrations about your projects.
The clubs may plan recreational activities, community service projects, fundraisers and field trips. As a 4-H club member, you have the opportunity to meet new people, make new friends, learn about projects, participate in club trips and activities, and more. Each club is unique, as you and other members determine the focus of your own club.
