Some project leaders choose to open their project to all current San Joaquin 4-H members instead of restricting it to members of their community club; these are referred to as "countywide projects".
Countywide projects are structured in the same way as "normal" projects. They must offer at least 6 hours of educational content presented at pre-scheduled meetings, be overseen by at least one adult 4-H volunteer, offer leadership opportunities to youth, and members must enroll in the project on 4hOnline.
To enroll in a countywide project, the member should contact the project leader and confirm that there is room for them and to confirm any time/money commitments that it may require. Once the youth is sure that they want to join, the project leader will instruct them how to add the project on 4hOnline.
