Community Club Meeting Ideas for 4-H Volunteers
This page is intended to provide Extension volunteer professionals with ideas to engage youth in all aspects of the club meeting around monthly themes - from start to finish!
How to Develop Life Skills in 4-H Members
There are many benefits for youth being involved in 4-H community clubs, such as leadership and life skill development. Here are examples of what 4-H members and Cloverbuds learn through community club participation.
There are 4-H volunteer training opportunities scheduled around the state from late August through early October. A meal and 4-H club ideas (with supplies!) will be provided to each participant.
Volunteers are strongly encouraged to attend these trainings to gain new skills and learn how to restart/start 4-H clubs. This session will provide grab 'n' go training resources and curriculum you can use in working within the 4-H youth program. The training will also focus on building relationships between 4-H volunteers and Extension educators. We are excited to come back together to learn, socialize and recognize our excellent volunteers that support our youth.
