Rhode Island 4-H

Cooperative Extension, College of the Environment and Life Sciences


URI 4-H works with many organizations to expand the positive impacts of youth serving organizations.  If you serve youth age 5-18, please consider partnering with us.

One  way to partner is by starting a Short Term Project Club (SPIN)! They are designed to around a specific subject matter and average 6-10 hours of total meeting time.  Split up how ever you want to split it up.

These are sometimes held in partnership with other agencies, schools, libraries or community groups.  Example: The Warwick Children’s Librarian and a volunteer teach “starting a raised bed garden”, for 1 hour for 6 weeks.   Click HERE to learn all about short-term, agency based, special interest 4-H clubs.

We have curriculum and kits that can be borrowed!  We can help train staff on educational materials and on occasion we have educators that can go out to your group.  It costs nothing to borrow our kits or have your staff trained to use them!  If we do send educators out the program may have a cost.
