A 4-H SPIN club is a special interest club where five or more young people from at least two different families get together to learn about a topic of interest. The topics covered can be anything of interest to the youth: nature, heritage arts, science, engineering, gardening, technology, and more! SPIN clubs are led by MSU Extension staff or volunteers who have a passion and want to share their knowledge with young people. Each club meets a total of at least six to eight hours, a minimum of five times over a 2 to 3 month period. Meetings generally are an hour, but can be longer depending on project/club’s needs.
Through their SPIN club experience, youth learn by doing as they build, create, explore, make, discover, test, plan, cut, estimate, experiment, experience, measure, draw and so much more!
