4-H volunteers are great at making the best better and we've provided a great tool to help with club meetings. This is a collection of ready-to-use lessons, handouts and resources to help advisors strengthen their club in just 20 minutes. Lessons will develop members’ communication and leadership skills along with making the best 4-H clubs better. Most lessons have an in-person and virtual plan for flexibility in conducting the activities during your club meetings.
