Enrollment Toolbox

Grand County 4-H Cloverbuds programs are activity focused and not project-focused and built on cooperative learning, rather than competitive activities. 4-H Cloverbud members participate in occasional, non-competitive, sampler-type, age-appropriate, properly supervised events or activities sponsored or conducted by 4-H groups.

The primary difference between a 4-H Cloverbuds activity and a 4-H project is that a Cloverbuds member engages in varied activities which focus on developing a specific skill or concept utilized in completing the activity rather than focusing on a long-term planned course of study in a specific project (subject) area. As a result, 4-H Cloverbuds members should not have ongoing projects, of any kind – including animal projects – nor should they participate as competitive exhibitors with animals – large or small, because within the 4-H program, exhibits are intended to showcase the culmination of a long-term project.

Grand County Cloverbud program plans several activity based program though out the year and encourages participation in local club meeting to help with the transition from cloverbud to regular 4-H membership
