4-H SPIN Clubs New Option For Young People

A 4-H SPIN Club is a special interest club where five or more young people learn about a topic of interest. Topics vary and include interests such as nature, heritage arts, science, photography, gardening, shooting sports, and more. SPIN clubs are led by volunteers who have a passion and want to share their knowledge with young people. We are looking for adults that have a talent or interest that they are willing to teach to young people in local communities. We are planning now for SPIN clubs that will meet in the next 3-6 months. SPIN clubs are planned around the volunteers availability. Have a positive impact on the next generation of young people in your community by sharing your experience and knowledge in a subject area you are passionate about. Contact Sarah Morefield, Clay County 4-H Youth Development Specialist, at (816) 407-3490 or email  SPIN Club flyer (PDF)
