Club Management

Clubs are vital because they are the ultimate in experiential learning for young

people, giving them the leadership and power to make their own decisions

and watch how those decisions effect their life and the lives of others! View more information on management practices on the club management page.


Encouraging Project Work in our Members

  • Developing Project Work - The work completed by individual 4-H members.
  • Project Group - Small groups of youth focused on one particular project lead by a Project Leader.
  • 4-H Curriculum - 4-H curriculum should always be the first source of information in developing a project. The curriculum has been designed with age appropriate information and focus on the skills and knowledge a member should attain at any one particular stage in their 4-H project work. Youth are encouraged to excel and branch out into other areas through project exploration. If Oklahoma 4-H doesn't have what you need check out other state 4-H websites.
