4‑H is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. Kids complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles. Kids experience 4‑H in every county and parish in the United States—through in-school and after-school programs, school and community clubs and 4‑H camps.

Youth between the ages of 8 and 19 are eligible for enrollment in 4-H. Youth must be 8 years of age on or before January 1 of the current 4-H year to enroll. Youth turning 19 on or before January of the current 4-H year are no longer eligible for 4-H membership.

4-H Online Enrollment Process:

First year 4-H members need to complete a paper registration form. Then a 4-H Online profile will be created for you.  After completion of the online profile by the 4H office, the member sets their own password.
