Finding a Club

Club List by General Location within the County

Once you know the types of projects you are interested in taking, you will be able to look for a 4-H club in your area that offers help in the projects your child is interested in taking. Check out the Club List linked above to help you find a club or scroll to the end of this webpage for a listing sorted by location. Not all clubs are able to offer help in every project we have available, so many clubs specialize in certain projects. Narrow your list to a couple clubs and contact the club's organizational advisor. Finding a club that fits your needs is essential to having a postitive 4-H experience.

Here are some questions you may want to ask the organizational advisor:

  • Where do you meet?
  • Do you have a scheduled meeting date? If so, what day and time?
  • Do you have an advisor to help in my child's project area or will I (the parent) need to be the primary source for helping?
  • What is the age range of your club? Do you have other children that are the age of my child?

Once you have called a couple clubs and decided on which one best meets your needs, call the organizational advisor to find out when they will have their next meeting. Out of courtesy, please call the other clubs that you had contacted to let them know your final decision. It will help them with planning for the year and knowing how many other new members they can add.
