Texas 4-H will offer SPIN clubs
COLLEGE STATION -- Texas 4-H is developing and implementing a new club model for youth and families who may not want to participate in a year-long experience.
The new Special Interest, or SPIN, clubs being developed will allow kids ages 5-18 with common interests or hobbies to meet as a club and share their special interest.Some possible special interest areas that may be in store for the SPIN format could include archery, clothing and textiles, consumer education, food and nutrition, photography, poultry, wildlife, and more.
Characteristics of the new SPIN clubs may include meeting where it is convenient for members, a flexible and variable time frame for projects or activities, offering different curriculum/project-material levels ranging from beginner to advanced, and a smaller youth-to-adult ratio so more leaders and volunteers can serve as mentors.
