In 4-H, youth are the leaders. They're learning, teaching, serving their communities and gaining skills for the future—and having fun doing it! Given the right opportunities, they will be the ones to make our world a better place and create a positive impact. What if you were one of them?

Join 4-H today!

Henry and Stark Counties 4-H has community clubs youth and teens can join. These clubs meet on a regular (monthly) basis in cities and towns across the county throughout the year.  At 4-H Club meetings members elect officers, share projects, give demonstrations, go on special outings, do community service projects, share snacks, and have a great time meeting new friends.

You can also become a 4-H SPIN Club member. 

A SPIN club is a Special Interest Club sponsored by 4-H. The club is formed when 5 or more youth want to gather to explore a specific topic. We have many different SPIN Clubs you can participate in such as Disc Golf, Photography, Lego Robotics, and more!  They are started by volunteers who have a passion for a topic and want to share their knowledge with youth!  If you have a hobby you would like to share with youth as a Special Interest Club leader, contact Cheryl Geitner, 4-H Youth Educator at cgeitner@illinois.edu
