4-H Enrollment and Fee:

This year the State is implementing a fee to join 4-H beginning October 1, 2017. This will be done through 4-H Online. Here is an informational packet about the fee from the state office. Please do not let this determine whether or not you will join. 4-H is a great organization that teaches life skills, encourages higher education, and youth are less likely to be involved in risky behaviors (Tufts University, 2012). There is a waiver available if you would like to use it. When you come to the payment choices just choose the waiver. No money is to be sent to the local office - it goes to the state office and there is an address provided if you are sending a check. The enrollment system will be open on October 2, 2017 for the new 4-H year.
