 Find a Club!

4-H clubs are groups of youth and volunteer leaders who meet on a regular basis. This could be monthly or some other time-frame that works best for the group. Meetings give youth opportunities to share project work, plan community service activities, and practice running meetings.

4-H is present in every Montana county. Youth ages 5 to 19, from cities, towns and rural areas participate as members. Adults age 19+ can join as volunteer leaders.To join a club, contact the Montana State University Extension office in your county and ask to speak with someone about joining 4-H.

Pick Your Projects

Members choose from a range of projects, based on their interests and the availability of a knowledgeable adult in the community to serve as a leader. Through these projects, members set goals, learn the skills needed to achieve goals, and demonstrate their skills at events like county fairs, speaking contests and other competitions. 4-H projects and activities allow members the opportunity to explore their interests, develop and demonstrate practical life skills, and serve their community.
