Joining 4-H is easy.  First you need to find a club thats fits your needs.  We have over 25 clubs spread throughout the county and each one is a little different.  Some clubs specialize in livestock projects, some focus more on Family Consumer Science projects and there are several that offer any project and cloverbuds!  The clubs range in size from 5 to over 60 kids and everywhere in between. For more information about finding a club please contact the Extension office at 740-852-0975

Eligibility for Cloverbud participation begins when a child is age 5 and enrolled in kindergarten. Eligibility for participation in 4-H projects and competitive events begins when a child is age 8 and in third grade. Any youth age 9 or above is eligible for project membership, regardless of grade level. Membership requires enrollment in an authorized Ohio 4-H club or group under the direction of an OSU Extension professional or an approved adult volunteer. A youth’s 4-H eligibility ends December 31 the year they turn 19. Joining Ohio 4 H is a privilege and responsibility for individuals and is subject to the Ohio 4-H Code of Conduct and applicable policies of The Ohio State University.

Membership is open to any youth regardless of race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, sex, age, handicap, or Vietnam-era status.

Cloverbuds

Request for 4-H Membership Across County Lines Form and Policy - Youth are expected to affiliate with the 4-H program in their county of residence. However, in some circumstances, it is appropriate for a youth to participate in a county other than their county of residence. This can be done with the approval of the 4-H professionals in both the county of residence and the county of the request. Parents seeking 4-H membership for their child in a county in which they do not reside should complete the Request for 4-H Membership Across County Lines Form and turn it in to the county of request at least 30 days prior to the enrollment deadline.

Project Books

There are over 200 projects 4-H members may select to enroll and participate in over the course of a year. The Family Guide gives an overview of each 4-H Project. In addition, you can check out all the 4-H projects on-line through 4-H Project Central. Families and advisors can purchase books directly in our office. When registering on 4-H Online, take great care in entering the correct project numbers.
