Start Your Own!

Don’t see a club you’re interested in… Start your own! All it takes is 5 youth (from 3 different families) between the ages of 5 and 18 and an adult volunteer leader. Create your own club name and do activities centered around group member interests. There is a variety of research-based 4-H curriculum to meet every child’s interest available free of charge from the 4-H office. See a list of the many types of 4-H Clubs below:

SPIN 4-H Clubs: Choose a specific topic and lead a club for 6 weeks instead of a full year! SPIN Clubs can focus on anything from gardening, soap making, cake decorating, rocket building, financial management, theater, mountain biking, showing rabbits, bread baking, canning, and so much more! We just need volunteers to lead them.

Traditional 4-H Community Club: These are year-round 4-H clubs. They are what you probably think of when “4-H Club” comes to mind. Traditional 4-H clubs have been around since the start of 4-H. They typically meet once a month and focus on community service, leadership, project work, and more!

School 4-H Clubs:  Does your school have a designated club meeting time during the school day? If so, you can start a 4-H school club! School clubs do all of the same types of 4-H activities as our traditional clubs but in a school setting lead by a school teacher, support staff, or school volunteer. School club members that become official 4-H members are eligible to participate in an of the 4-H activities we offer through New Hanover County, North Carolina State… and even NATIONAL 4-H programs!!!
