4-H Virtual Space Exploration Club

Help ignite a passion for space exploration in young people

Minnesota 4-H is leading an effort to pilot a virtual learning club supported by adult volunteers all centered in space exploration! As part of our developing partnership with the UMN Bell Museum (St. Paul), we will use the upcoming launch of NASA’s James Webb space telescope as a virtual kickoff to a space exploration club starting October 2021.


We know learning opportunities are made even stronger when caring adults are involved.

Provide an authentic virtual learning experience

Minnesota 4-H is seeking 2 dedicated adults (ages 19+) to support and facilitate this virtual space exploration club. In this club, youth will engage directly in space-based content, engage in hands-on science and engineering activities, learn directly from experts, and connect with other youth across the state. These experiences will be coordinated by the space exploration club volunteers alongside Minnesota 4-H staff.

This is a great opportunity for space enthusiasts, science professionals, parents of young people, or post-secondary students who would like to inspire and learn alongside young people. This is a flexible time commitment, approximately 4-8 hours per month, starting in October 2021 with potential to continue into 2022.

Minimum requirements
  • Must be at least 19 years old
  • Must complete Minnesota 4-H Volunteer Screening process
  • Must have access to reliable internet
Minimum commitment
  • Participate in a 45 minute orientation the week of October 4th, 2021 with 4-H Staff.
  • Plan and facilitate at least 4- 6 virtual club gatherings (approximately 60-90 minutes each) on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis starting October of 2021

Mission Statement

Hennepin County 4-H supports high quality sustainable clubs and programs, which allow young people (grades Kindergarten through one year after high school) to measurably improve their learning and leadership through educational programs and applied research. We work with youth, families, volunteers, interns, and partners to provide intentional space for young people to discover their interests, develop focused skills, and then connect those skills and interests to future possibilities. Much of Hennepin County 4-H's work focuses on engaging youth in meaningful leadership opportunities. We seek to provide opportunities where youth can discover their personal leadership abilities, build critical thinking and decision-making skills, and contribute their leadership skills to making a positive impact in their community.
