For the Club

Leader

Leader Guide  | Individual Sections - A reference manual for 4-H Leaders.

Club Analysis Tool - Each 4-H Club is unique. This uniqueness is one of the things that makes 4-H so fantastic. Clubs may choose to focus on different program aspects of 4-H, depending upon the expectations and needs of the families in their club. Clubs are free to choose which 4-H program areas they wish to focus on. Some clubs choose to be very project focused, so they spend a great deal of time improving upon the project skills of their members. Some clubs plan many club activities for their members and families to participate in and others plan fewer events. Other clubs encourage their members to participate in many opportunities outside of their club. Their members attend many district, regional and provincial activities. All of these scenarios are right if they fit the needs and expectations of the members and families in the club.
Using This Tool: • Become a more self-aware club • Help with goal setting and program planning • Ensure that your club has a common understanding of what type of club they are • Give Key Leaders will have a better picture of the club • Inform potential members and families what type of club you are

Club Registration Checklist - Registering your 4-H Club has never been easier! Use this checklist to ensure that you (the General Leader or Club Registrar) have all the information you need before you begin the on-line registration process to register your 4-H Club.
