4-H Enrollment and Fee:

Enrollment for the new 4-H year is done through 4-H Online. 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 for the fee. 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 is open as of October 1, 2018 for the new 4-H year. Returning families must enroll by January 31, 2019.

New families may enroll until May 1 of the current 4-H year. 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.
