4-H community clubs consist of youth in Kindergarten through one year beyond high school graduation (grade 12) coming together. Each club is unique because the members themselves decide which of the projects and activities they want to do.
It’s as easy as 1-2-3! It takes a small group of 5 or more young people from at least two families and a minimum of two adults who are willing to work with them. Before the club becomes official, proper paperwork must be completed. The group works with the 4-H Youth Development staff to establish a meeting day, time, club name, and to start brainstorming the projects and activities the youth want to do. Support for this new club begins with the UW-Extension office, the Racine County 4-H Leader’s Association and the 1,100 members of Racine County 4-H.
