How to Join a 4-H Community Club

You can join 4-H and select projects if you are in grades 3 through 13. Clubs even accept members in 5K, first and second grades in a special level called the Cloverbud program.

In order to join here’s what you need to do:

First, select a 4-H club, you will see a name and phone number for that club’s general leader. The map is interactive so that you can see which clubs are closest to where you live, just click on the clover.

Next, call the club’s general leader and find out more information about the club and its members. Most 4-H members join in the fall, but new members can join at any time. (The deadline to enroll to be eligible to show at the Shawano County Fair is January 5.)

Most folks find it beneficial to actually visit at a meeting of one or more of the clubs you may be interested in joining to ensure it will be a good fit for you. Clubs vary by meeting times, project emphasis (although you can enroll in any project in our clubs), amount and type of community service done by the members and other factors.

Once you have selected your club, you can go to http://wi.4honline.com to create a family profile and to complete your member enrollment by selecting your projects, then get ready to discover what 4-H is all about! (if you are joining after January 5, you can still enroll online, but you will be unable to choose projects.

Parents can also sign up to be leaders! In order to be eligible, they need to have completed the Volunteer In Preparation (VIP) process and completed the online enrollment process described above.  If you would like to explore becoming a leader, contact your club general leader.
