How to Join a 4-H Community Club

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

To join, here’s what you need to do:

First, select a 4-H club from the list above. You will see a name and phone number for that club’s Organizational Leader.

Next, call that Organizational Leader and find out more information about the club and its members. Most 4-H club members join in the fall, but new members can join at any time.

Finally, attend the 4-H club meeting with your parents,  select your projects, and get ready to discover what 4-H is all about!

Parents can also sign up to be leaders! In order to be eligible, they need to complete the Volunteer Orientation Process. If you would like to explore becoming a leader, contact the club leader.

In the event that a member/leader is unable to pay the club enrollment fee, please contact the Dane County 4-H Office. The Dane County 4-H Program is open to all regardless of the ability to pay.
