4-H Is For You! Licking County 4-H Clubs Brochure (updated 10/19/21) - In this brochure you will find a listing of 4-H clubs in Licking County--where they are, what projects they offer and how to get in touch with them. Members must enroll online by April 1 of each year.

When joining a club, consider these issues:
  • 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 works with 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 Organizational Club Advisor (listed in club brochure) and find out the club's meeting dates and times.

  • Once you have decided on a club(s) that might be a possibility for you, call and ask the organizational club advisor 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.
