Your 4-H club is a group of young people with adult leaders who want to get together to have fun and to learn. Clubs conduct themselves under the guidelines of the florida 4-H program. Generally, members meet once a month. they also participate in activities with other clubs from around the county and the state.
One of the main ways that 4-Hers have fun learning is by doing a “project” using a project book from the 4-H office. After learning about the project and doing some activities, the 4-her can give a “demonstration” to tell his or her club members and other about what he or she has learned. A club or home study member can make a display about a project. sometimes project activities are also done in your club, and at other times at county-wide workshops or classes.
Each club is urged to participate in at least one community service activity each year. Community service is important in the 4-H program. it gives club members a chance to contribute something to our community. Through community service projects, you will learn about citizenship and what being a citizen really means.
