Why Join 4-H

Why Join 4-H?

Participation is the key element in 4-H. The more you do, the more you will get out of it and the more friends you will make. There are so many different activities in 4-H — there is something for everyone!

Browse our website, paying close attention to projects, programs, events, contests, and scholarships. Join 4-H and you’ll soon be having so much fun you won’t believe it! For detailed information on Idaho 4-H, download our Policies and Procedures.
Who can join?
Youths age 5 to 19 can join as members. Adults ages 19 and up can join as volunteers. There are age limits for some projects (more fully explained in the Idaho 4-H Today publication). The Cloverbuds program is designed specifically for younger 4-H members.

Do you need to join a 4-H community club?
Most members belong to a community club that meets regularly throughout the year, but there are a number of 4-H activities and programs that do not require membership in a club. Visit Programs and Youth Opportunities for New Members to find out more about 4-H programs and clubs.

When can you join?
You can enroll in 4-H at any time throughout the year, although some projects may have enrollment deadlines to show them in the county fair.

Where do you find 4-H?
4-H programs can be found in every Idaho county. Youths from cities, suburbs, towns, and rural settings participate.

How do you join?
Call your closest county extension office. Ask to speak with someone about joining 4-H.

How much does 4-H cost?
To join a club, the state participation fee per youth is $5 per year or $15 per family (with three or more members), with additional county fees that cover administrative costs and insurance (usually less than $20). Some types of projects have additional costs for supplies, equipment, travel, etc.
