Join 4-H

4-H for all!

4-H does not have specific membership requirements. All youth from Kindergarten through Grade 13 are welcome to join. Unlike other clubs 4-H does not divide activities by gender and we offer graduated experiences to youth in different “ages and stages” of development. Whatever you love to do, you can find it here.

Joining 4-H can be as simple as attending one of our events or club meeting with a friend who is already a member of 4-H. Club meetings are open to the public. Some schools offer an after-school 4-H club, which are easy to attend. Every participation counts, and we’re happy to have you!

Take the next step

Not sure about which club or afterschool program?

If you’re looking for a club experience, you’re first step is to talk with a 4-H educator in your county to learn about what your interests are and which club or program fits best fits your interests. Start that conversation by filling out our 4-H Interest Form!

Know your preferred club and ready to sign up?

4-H Online is our easy tool for getting registered as a member and becoming affiliated with a club.

Not a kid? Want to volunteer?

Volunteers help make 4-H possible. Extension volunteers work with staff to deliver educational programs using University and other high-quality educational resources.
