When joining a club, consider this:
- Think about your project interest. Some clubs will work with all projects; some have limits on the type of project they will accept in their club. If you have a specific interest, you will want to look for a club that works with your project interest. If you do not have a project interest at this point, you will want to look for a club that accepts all projects.
- Schedule. Find a club whose meeting schedule is possible for you. Some clubs have a set meeting night and some clubs vary their meeting night to accommodate various family schedules. You will need to contact the club leader and find out the cub's meeting times.
- Once you have decided on a club(s) that might be a possibility for you, contact the 4-H leader if you can visit at their next club meeting. It is okay to visit more than one club before deciding which is the best club for you.
