Join 4-H and the Enrollment Process

Who Can Join 4-H?

Any person, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, ancestry, marital status, familial status, sexual orientation or disability, may enroll as a 4-H member.

  • Youth who are ages 5 through 7 years of age on or before September 1 may enroll in a 4-H Cloverbud group.
  • Youth who are 8 years of age and have not reached their 19th birthday on or before September 1 may enroll in 4-H clubs or groups.

Enrollment Process

If you meet the age requirement, the first step in enrolling in 4-H is to find a club or group to join.  See the Boone County 4-H Club Listing to help you locate a club or contact our office for assistance.

Once a club has been selected, the enrollment process is online.

For help with enrolling online, there is a 4-H Online guide available on this page.
