Del Arroyo 4-H will continue to follow the county office recommendations for Covid protocols. Masks are not currently required at community club or project meetings but are encouraged. Some projects will continue to be offered virtually this next year, but a majority will resume in person. Please contact the community club leader if you have any questions. For a complete & current list of 4-H Covid guidelines see this list. https://ucanr.edu/sites/safety/files/326442.pdf
Now is a time when the skills and leadership 4-H members develop are more relevant than ever. Check our community service page for ways to help with mask making, food pantries, and senior care. We will be updating this list with new projects soon!
What is 4-H?
4-H is a national program administered through the Cooperative Extension which encourages members ages 5 through 19 to learn by doing. Locally, families join clubs which are run by adult volunteers and youth leaders. Each club offers its members and members of other clubs within the county a variety of projects, events, and community service activities based on the member families’ interests and abilities.
Del Arroyo 4-H Club is based in Alameda County 4-H and serves members from the City of Livermore and surrounding towns and cities. We have an active body of adult volunteers who administer the club, lead projects, and support our youth leaders in running project and club meetings. 4-H clubs usually come together once a month, to address club business, sign up for community service and outreach events and socialize. These community club or CC meetings, provide members an opportunity to develop public speaking and leadership skills. Our club meets once a month at 6pm, usually on the third Wednesday, at Arroyo Seco Elementary School. All member families and potential member families are welcome. For more information see our 4-H culture guide.
