Rock Island County 4-H has dozens of 4-H Community Clubs to join. Clubs meet on a regular 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, make crafts, share snacks, and have a great time meeting new friends.  They also exhibit projects at the Rock Island County Fair.  4-H also offers a variety of Special Interest (SPIN) Clubs to explore a specific topic like Sewing, Shooting Sports, Disc Golf, Coding, Entomology and more! They are started by volunteers who have a passion for a topic and want to share their knowledge with youth!

If you are interested in joining or volunteering for Rock Island County 4-H, contact Tracy Fowler-Pestle, 4-H Program Coordinator at (309) 582-5106 or email her at
