A traditional 4-H club has a minimum of five members, ages 8 to 18, and at least one screened adult volunteer. These clubs hold regular business meetings at least six times per year and elect officer positions. 4-H members may participate in individual and group projects, workshops, judging contests, the 4-H fair, and other fun learning activities throughout the year. There are over 200 project areas to choose from. All 4-H curriculum is designed to include hands-on activities.
The 4-H Cloverbud program helps build confident kids. Specially designed for kids ages five through seven, the 4-H Cloverbud program gets kids excited about learning. The 4-H Cloverbud program uses hands-on learning activities to help kids explore art, plants and animals, science, and the environment. They also engage in group activities that promote personal development, healthy life-styles, and a sense of citizenship. Cloverbuds are given the opportunity to display their accomplishments in a noncompetitive environment during the annual 4-H Fair.
