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.
You must enroll by January 31, 2017 as a returning 4-H family member.New families may enroll until May 1, 2017. If you have new members joining your club encourage them to get signed up early so they don't miss the deadline. See link above to enroll.
