Rowan 4-H Clubs meet throughout the year. More information on 4-H Clubs.

County Council is open to youth ages 12-18 (as of January 1). This group typically meets each month from 6-7 p.m. at the Extension office. This group of 4-H’ers plans and organizes county level programs (such as Achievement Night). They are involved in planning fundraisers and community service projects and creating new ideas for Rowan County 4-H.

Parents, Alumni, Leaders and Supporters (PALS) is open to any adult who wants to support 4-H and help plan, fundraise and share new ideas that will benefit the Rowan County 4-H Program. This group meets every other month at 6 p.m. at the Extension office.
