- Maintaining a 4-H Club
Steps required to maintain the charter of a 4-H Club:
- Submit annual set of Monthly 4-H Meeting Planning Guides to your county Extension office. Keep OSU Extension informed of changes and additions.
- Actively recruit and meet regularly with volunteers and youth from a variety of racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic groups in your community.
- Complete an end of year report of club activities and submit to your county Extension office.
- Annual review of financial accounting/funds from the county office/school activity fund/foundation approved by the club’s leadership team.
- Complete a regular enrollment process for 4-H members and volunteers. Based on youth enrollment a healthy and/or adequate youth-adult ratio is maintained.
- Have a team of local parent(s)/volunteer(s) attend Parent-Volunteer Continuing Education opportunities for personal development, as well as to take the information back for use in the club.
- Club represented at all county Parent-Volunteer Association meetings by parent(s)/volunteer(s).
