Who Are We?
We are the only homeschooling-friendly 4-H club in Alameda County, CA. Welcome!
We have a general meeting every month on the second Monday of the month to discuss our projects and happenings, and invite anyone interested in our club to join. Our meetings start at 2:00 PM at
St. Paul Lutheran Church
1658 Excelsior Avenue
Oakland, CA, 94602
But what exactly do we do in 4-H?
Our club offers a wide variety of projects that kids can take part in, from Sewing to Table Setting, from Citizenship to Public Speaking, from Poultry to Gardening, from Film-making to Lego Builders, and many more. Besides projects (that meet once a month, sometimes less often, depending on the leader), our club is run by members, so children in 4-H have many opportunities for leadership, as well as community service and fun social events. Finally, creating and giving presentations at Presentation Day, and making craft objects, science experiments or food items for the County Fair round out our members' experiences, providing valuable life skills.
This is the 4-H Pledge, which we recite at every club meeting:
As a true 4-H member, I pledge ...
- My HEAD to clearer thinking,
- My HEART to greater loyalty,
- My HANDS to larger service, and
- My HEALTH to better living for my club, my community, my country and my world.
Learn about our club
We'll be holding a club open house at St. Paul's Lutheran Church on August 27th at 2:00 PM. The address of the church is listed above. This event is intended to let prospective members get a feel for the club, and is an excellent opportunity to learn more about us. Several projects will have displays, and members of the club will be present to talk to prospective members.
Learning by doing, Learning by teaching, Learning with friends and family...
4-H is a great complement to homeschooling, and while our club meetings are in San Leandro, club members come from around the East Bay. We provide experiences that help our members learn to live and work cooperatively with others, acquire knowledge and skills, explore careers, and make new friends!
Please come visit our Web site; learn about us; see the opportunities we offer for leadership, citizenship, service, learning, and record keeping; and explore our many exciting projects.
