Would you like to learn to...
...ride a horse?
...assemble a robot?
...bake a cake?
...shoot a bow?
...sew a duffle bag?
These are just a few of the 4-H SPIN Clubs that may be available in your county!
4-H special interest clubs are a fun way to bring kids & teens who want to learn a special skill or hobby together with adults who know how to do the skills/hobby. A SPIN Club can be started with as few as one adult leader and five youth. The adult provides expertise and guidance. Youth learn the new skills/hobby and run their own club. For adults and youth alike, it creates a fun, “learn-by-doing” experience.
SPINS usually meet 6 to 12 times during a few months. For example: A robotics or sewing club might meet once a week for six weeks or twice a week for three weeks. Many can work around the schedules of athletics and other youth activities.
Members of the SPIN Club elect officers. Each club meeting starts with a short business meeting, led by club officers. Then everybody gets their hands and minds into learning the special interest that brought them together--how to ride, bake, sew, etc.
To learn about the SPIN Clubs available in your county or if you are an adult who wants to start a SPIN Club, contact your county Extension agent.
Joining a SPIN opens the door to a world of 4-H opportunities!
