Toledo Techs 4-H Club are open to all youth in grades 4-12th. Youth who are interested in learning more about food & nutrition, sewing, photography, painting as well as cattle, swine and sheep are members of this club. It is not required that you live on a farm to be part of 4-H. Members also learn about leadership, communication and citizenship.

Toledo Techs meet monthly on the first Monday of the month at the Tama County Extension and Outreach Office (203 West High Street, Toledo use the back entrance). The meetings are organized by club leaders Patrick Henry and Darla Thiessen but are run by the 4-H members themselves. Parents are needed throughout the year to help. 4-H is a family event.

The club plans many activities throughout the year. These activities focus on the 4 H's of 4-H: Head, Heart, Hands and Health. Examples are creating Veteran's Day cards, planting flowers by the Extension Office, promoting 4-H at STC schools, inviting a community member to teach them about photography, attending a movie together, summer swim party and more.
