Project Clubs

A 4-H Project Club is an organized learning community that meets regularly with adult volunteers or staff for a long-term, progressive series of educational experiences. Project clubs are organized around a specific subject matter (project) area (e.g. robotics, shooting sports, rabbits, dairy goats, horse, dogs, or electricity, etc.).

The youth and adult volunteers use club meetings to learn together about the subject around which they have organized. They have a progressive series of educational experiences that include lessons, field trips, and teaching each other about related concepts. They often prepare an exhibit for a county fair. They develop leadership skills (club officers/leadership roles) and group process skills by working together and completing projects that are meaningful to each other or their community.
