- Community 4-H Clubs – typically meet in the evenings or on weekends and offer self-chosen multiple learning experiences and activities.
- In-School 4-H Clubs – meet during school hours, but have officers and planned activities beyond school enrichment.
- Afterschool 4-H Clubs – organized within child care settings. They have officers and planned activities.
- Military 4-H Clubs – organized by the Armed Forces, often on military installations, and principally for military dependents.
Youth who are 4-H Club Members in their local communities may also choose to:
- Participate in State, Regional, and National Programs
- Serve in a Club leadership role
- Compete for ribbons, awards, trophies, scholarships and other forms of recognition
- Promote the 4-H Youth Development Program to others
