Clubs available for the 2022-2023 school year are:

County Council

4-H’ers 4th-12th grade meet once a month to enjoy peer led activities and community service. Officers plan and lead each club meeting. This is also a great way to learn about upcoming local, district, and state events and competitions. Activities that we have done for County Council include a luggage collection for foster children, decorating lunch bags for MUST Ministries, international night, talent shows, costume contests, and much more! Meetings are 6:30-8pm on September 6, October 4, November 1, December 6, January 10, February 7, March 7, April 11, and May 2 at the Extension Office. Contact Brittani Lee at for more information.


4-H C.H.E.F.

4-H C.H.E.F. stands for “Cobb Helping Every Family”. The 4-H C.H.E.F. program will meet once a month on a Wednesday at the Extension Office to prepare a meal for a local family in need. This is open to 4th-12th graders. To ensure that we are following proper food safety protocol, any 4-H’er that is interested in attending a monthly 4-H CHEF cooking program must attend a mandatory Food Safety Handlers class. The fall Food Safety Handlers class will be on August 18th. Each month, 4-H’ers will sign up to attend the class, so it is not a typical club format. It is a monthly community service event. Any 4-H’er that attends the food safety handlers class is eligible to sign up. Contact Brittani Lee at for more information.
