4-H Clubs

4-H offers two types of clubs to the youth of Waukesha County; SPIN Clubs and Community Clubs.

SPIN Clubs

A SPIN club is a special interest 4-H club that focuses on shorter-term, higher-impact programming related to specific activities and skill development for youth with common interests or hobbies.Topics vary and include interests such as nature, heritage arts, science, engineering, gardening, technology, and more.

SPIN clubs meet six or more times for at least one hour per session. The time commitment could be a number of weeks or months based on the frequency of the meetings. Meeting dates are set by the volunteer leader based on the availability of potential participants.

Community Clubs

A Community Club is a traditional 4-H Club that meets regularly during the school year and offers over 100 interest areas to learn and study as well as leadership opportunities. The more involved a youth (or parent) is, the more they benefit from the program. The most basic commitment is:

  • Attending Monthly Club Meetings
  • Attending Project Meetings (number varies by project, most county wide projects have between two and five monthly meetings, dog training meets weekly from March to Fair)
  • Club Community Service Projects
  • Showing 4-H Projects at the County Fair
