New Members

4-H Youth New Member Enrollment Steps

Choose a Club. Not sure where your local club is located? See our club map here to find out what clubs and camp are offered in your area. You will have to choose a minimum of one club or camp when you sign up.

Contact the club. Contact the Club Leader for the club you are interested in joining to let them know you are signing up. They will be collecting the 4-H program fees and also can give you more information about the club and the types of projects they offer.

Choose a Project. Your Club Leader can let you know what projects are open for enrollment. You can choose the projects and activities that sound interesting to you.  

Sign up in 4hOnline.* Create a family profile on 4hOnline. Members are grouped by Family, so you can add all youth family members who want to join 4-H. If you are under 18, please have a parent or guardian enter the information. Step by step instructions: New Member - How to enroll in 4hOnline

*For Spanish: The 4hOnline system is only in English. Please fill in the paper enrollment packet in Spanish and turn it in to your club leader or county staff for them to enter it into 4hOnline for you. Please keep a copy of the paper forms for your records. You will also have to check back with your county 4-H Program Representative for your membership status.

Member history form: The Health History form is now in 4hOnline. Please fill in completely - this can be accessed for participation in 4-H events and activities. Club leader and project leaders may request for a hard copy. Print out member history form (on the Member List screen, under Member Reports, select the youth name and the Report: Member-Health Form)

Submit program fees. Submit your program fees payment to your Club Leader. The club leader will confirm when payments are received so your enrollment can be processed. In addition to the State 4-H fees, the county and club have additional fees, depending on the project(s) you choose.

Get activated. Once your county 4-H office reviews the enrollment, you will receive an email sent to your Family email account to confirm your enrollment status as Active. If you filled a paper enrollment form, you will have to check with the county 4-H Program Representative for your membership status.

Participate! Check your Family email account for the confirmation that your renewal is active. Once your membership is active, you may participate in 4-H events and activities!
