Any person, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, ancestry, marital status, familial status, sexual orientation, or disability may enroll as a 4-H member.
- Youth who are five through seven years of age may enroll in 4-H Cloverbud Clubs. (Note that not all counties offer the Cloverbud program. Check with your local extension office.)
- Youth who are eight years of age and have not reached their nineteenth birthday on or before September 1 of the current year may enroll in 4-H clubs and groups.
Ask around. Check with your friends and neighbors. Find an existing club that is working on a project area that interests you and has room for new members.
Another option is to find a project area that interests you, gather some friends together, add an adult willing to be your leader, and start a new club. The Discover 4-H Clubs curriculum is a great way to get started.
Your county 4-H Volunteer Coordinator or 4-H Staff Assistant are excellent resources to help you locate established clubs or start a new one. Don't hesitate to contact them for additional information and assistance with the club formation process.
Established clubs have leaders that can help you with the 4-H Online enrollment process. This video will also help you to get through the enrollment process. Starting a new club and need help registering? Check out our 4-H Online support page.
While you are in the process of enrolling in 4-H, you will have the option to pay online. If you submit your enrollment without paying online, you can pay by mailing your fees to the county extension office, or calling the 4-H office to make payment by credit card over the phone.
The 4-H Volunteer Coordinator and 4-H Staff Assistant are also available to help you get set up. Give them a call.
