Cloverbud clubs are a component of the 4-H program designed especially for children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. These programs require more adult supervision and the focus is on cooperative learning rather than competition.
Community 4-H clubs have a planned program that runs throughout the year and focuses on a variety of self-chosen learning experiences and activities. Examples include photography, robotics, gardening, animal science, ecology, rocketry, textiles, and cooking. 4-H community clubs typically meet in the evenings or on the weekend. 
Project 4-H clubs also provide planned programs that run throughout the year and focus on one project area. 4-H members build leadership by electing officers and conducting their own business meetings; work together on community service activities; meet new friends; and most important, have lots of fun. Project 4-H clubs typically meet in the evenings or on the weekend.

New Volunteers and Leaders
4-H volunteers have many different roles. A few examples are teaching project topics, planning workshops or camps, mentoring club officers, collecting member enrollment information, and teaching other volunteers. Some volunteer for a short time (e.g., chaperone a field trip), and others commit to ongoing service (e.g., meet with 4-H members every month). Whatever the role or commitment, every 4-H volunteer must be ready and able to reinforce positive youth development. For more information, download the 4-H: A Family Program (PDF) and Starting a 4-H Club or Group (PDF). 
To become a volunteer or leader, contact the 4-H Office and we can step you through the process of completing a Volunteer Application Form (PDF), attending a 4-H Leaders Training & Orientation Meeting, providing references, and completing a background check form. There is a $20 enrollment fee for new leaders.
