If you are enrolling in 4-H for the first time, you must contact your local Extension office before beginning the 4-H Online enrollment process.
Adults serving as a 4-H Club Project Leader or 4-H Club Organizational Leader must enroll through 4-H Online. Adult leaders who are new to the program need to create a new Family Profile.
Parents/Guardians of currently enrolled 4-H members should use their existing family profile and add themselves as a new "Adult Member".
Please note that only volunteers serving as Club Leaders should enroll through 4-H Online.
