How To Start A 4-H Club

Can't Find a 4-H Club in Your Area or offering projects you want? Here's what you can do!

If you are interested in starting a 4-H Club in your area of Northumberland County, please e-mail Sam Nicola, County 4-H Coordinator.

Starting a 4-H Club requires Adult Volunteer Leaders!  Although the 4-H Staff will be there every step of the way as you begin a new club, a club cannot begin without dedicated and caring adults to lead the way.  Adults interested in Volunteering as a 4-H Leader need to contact the County 4-H Staff to start the process.  Here's what you need to know to be an Volunteer 4-H Leader:

- 4-H Volunteers must go through a screening process to obtain 4-H Leader status.

- Although a few projects require some knowledge and/or training (for example: Shooting Sports projects, Electricity Project, etc.) an added benefit to being a 4-H leader is that you are able to learn right along with the youth through the 4-H Project Helpers' Guides that are available for most projects.

- Those adults interested in becoming a volunteer leader in an existing club OR to start up your own community club should contact Sam Nicola at to start the process.
