4-H SPIN Clubs
4-H SPIN clubs allow youth ages 5 to 18 with common interests or hobbies to meet as a club and share and learn more about their special interest. Whatever their passion is, youth can gain knowledge and enhance their skills through a positive group experience. A 4-H SPIN club can be started with a minimum of one adult volunteer and five young people with an interest in a particular topic. The adult(s) provide expertise and guidance. They are a great way to introduce young people to a specific topic or interest they might not otherwise have a chance to develop within a group setting built around the principles of Positive Youth Development (PYD).
How are 4-H SPIN Clubs different than Project Clubs?
Timing. 4-H SPIN Clubs are truly a short-term involvement (couple of weeks or couple of months) with a specific focus. Five or more sessions, over a period of 6 to 8 weeks.
