4-H Clubs

New 4-H members are ALWAYS welcome!  Please note that if you wish to  participate in the Green County fair, you must enroll by November 1st.  Member re-enrollment occurs in the fall of every year.

So how do I become a member?

You can join 4-H if you are in Kindergarten (5K) through one year past high school.

  1. Youth in Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades can join the “Cloverbud” project; a project specially designed to help youth at this age explore a variety of projects and interest, in a non-competitive environment.
  2. Youth in 3rd grade and older have a choice of over 60 project areas.

 

In order to join, just follow these four easy steps:

  1. First, choose a 4-H club that is best for you and your family (see list below).
    • We encourage you to learn about a couple different clubs and maybe even go observe a meeting, before selecting a club to join. Things to consider when choosing the club that is best for you include projects the club is most involved with, when and where the club holds meetings, and the size of the club. You may also choose to belong to a club that some of your friends or family belong to .  The choice is entirely up to you! If you would like more information about a club or if you need further assistance please contact the Green County UW-Extension office at 608-328-9440.
    • 4-H is a family focused program, where parent attendance is highly encouraged!
  2. Next, contact the 4-H Organizational Leader of the club you wish to join. Speaking with the leader will help you learn more about the club, its members, the enrollment process, enrollment dues and deciding which projects you would like to participate in.
    • Annual enrollment dues are paid to the club by the club’s deadline date.  County enrollment dues are $15 per member, and additional club and project fees may apply.  Financial assistance is also available.
    • The 4-H Enrollment & Project Guide provides directions for enrolling online at https://wi.4honline.com and an overview of the available 4-H projects.
    • While new 4-H members can enroll any time during the year, new and returning members must be enrolled by November 1st to be eligible to exhibit at the Green County Fair.
  3. Then, parents are encouraged to sign up to be a project leader or activity leader. Many parents, all chipping in to support the grow and development of our youth is what makes 4-H possible! In order to be eligible to be a leader, adult need to have enrolled online at https://wi.4honline.com and completed the 4-H Volunteer in Preparation (VIP) training.

Lastly, start regularly attending meetings and getting actively involved in your 4-H club and projects!
