Union County 4-H Clubs and Groups

What is a club?

A club is a group of five or more young people, guided by an adult leader. Members can elect officers and each member chooses one or more projects. Each club may explore a single subject or several subjects. 4-H members elect officers, conduct their own business, work together on community service activities, meet new friends, and most importantly, have lots of fun!

When do clubs meet and how long does a meeting last?

Most clubs meet once a month in the evenings, or after school year-round. The 4-H year runs from January 1 to December 31. Meetings usually last 1 hour to 1 ½ hours, depending on the members’ ages.

What do 4-H clubs do at meetings?

A typical club meeting will include opening pledges, a short business meeting for members to discuss future activities, a hands-on learning activity, and social time, which often includes recreation and refreshments.

Is there a limit to the number of club members per club?

The number of club members per club depends on the age of the members, the size of the facility, and the leadership available. The ideal club is big enough to have fun together but small enough for everyone to feel a part of the group.
