Organizational/Club Leaders

As a club leader, it is your role to help guide your officers with planning and running meetings, as well as supervising during club meetings or events.  You are playing a supporting role so that your club officers are successful. Here are some resources to help you with this.

Project Leaders

As a project leader, it is your role to work with members enrolled in a specific project or project area, assisting them to plan and carry out experiences that will help them reach their learning goals. Support the positive growth and development of each youth involved. Develop important life skills and create opportunities for you to learn, lead and serve. Time commitment may be two to four hours for planning, working directly with youth, and follow up for each project meeting. More time can be spent, if desired, by volunteers and members in the project group. Project leadership can be a short-term opportunity. A variety of options are available, such as working once a month, once a week, for a short terms periods or for the 4-H year (October to September).

Project and Club Books can be ordered online. Members should check with project leaders on whether or not they need project books. Project Books ARE NOT Record Books.
