Oak View 4-H offers kids a once-a-month meeting, run by youth officers to learn and practice parliamentary procedure and discuss what plans and projects they would like to see in their community. Many activities are planned throughout the year from building parade floats, to volunteering at Pumpkin Patches, to learning how to raise a rabbit or goat. All projects meet monthly. Highly qualified leaders run these meet ups and youth guide what they would like to accomplish in their meetings and have ample opportunity for hands on learning.

Oak View 4-H offers a turkey project, swine project, bunny project, dairy project, goat project and Clover project for youth 5-9 years old. The organization is always looking for more responsible adults or young adults to start up and volunteer to run new and engaging projects – anything from guitar lessons to canning, to dog training, to building MARS Rovers; the sky’s the limit with 4-H.

Oak View 4-H is run by the University of California Davis and works with the greater San Joaquin County 4-H program. The chapter also has an outdoor explorer project that will go on educational hikes and do a Mokelumne River Cleanup for Earth Day. Many of the kids who raise animals also decide to take them to AgFest in June to show them, sell them and win ribbons.

The club meets once a month on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m.
