How to Join 4-H

4-H Volunteer4-H has lots to do no matter what you're interested in or where you live.  Membership in 4-H is offered to all youth, ages 5-19, on an age-appropriate basis, without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, marital or family status. There are various clubs, workshops, events as well other ways to be involved in 4-H.

To find out more about what 4-H has to offer, contact or visit the the Extension Office in the county where you live.  Most counties also have local 4-H information on their own web sites.  If you'd like to join a 4-H club, you can find out what types are available and when and where they meet.  If one doesn't exist, it only takes a helpful adult to be a 4-H leader and a small group of kids who want to learn and have fun together.  Your county 4-H staff can help with the rest! To join a 4-H club, you'll need to complete a 4-H Club Member Registration Form (PDF) and a Permission to Participate Form (PDF).
