4-H clubs encourage youth, ages 5 to 19, to learn by doing. 4-H programs actively involve youth in quality experiences that focus on lifelong learning of values and skills. There are a variety of 4-H clubs and groups that young people can join.
There must be at least five youth from three different families in a 4-H club. Ten youth is a good number for a new club. However, there are many successful community clubs with 50 or more members. Club size also depends on adult leader support, meeting space and whether the club is a community or project club (it's easier to have large community clubs with several project leaders). The more diversity of interest areas, cultural background, age, etc. in a club will enhance everyone's experience!
To find out what types of clubs and groups are offered in your county, contact your county Extension office.
