As a member of Emeryville 4-H, your child would join one or more projects per year. All projects have a “learn by doing” focus and they all have different schedules. Most projects are announced at our club meeting in September and sign-ups are taken at the meeting. Spring projects are announced or re-announced at the January meeting and again, sign-ups are taken at that meeting.
Just about any interest can be turned into a project. Projects are led by adult volunteers and sometimes teen leaders. They have measurable objectives and usually involve some kind of record-keeping. A 4-H project needs to have a minimum of 6 hours of instruction. There must be at least 3 kids from 2 different families, and 2 adults must be present at each meeting, one of whom must have completed the “Beginning 4-H for Volunteers” training and be certified by the county.
