Join anytime! But join by the 4-H enrollment deadline, March 1st here in Fayette County, to take advantage of all 4-H opportunities including participation in Fair.

All returning members will utilize 4-H Online for re-enrollment in 4-H. If you are unsure of your login credentials, contact the Extension office to get your email connected to the account and follow the instructions provided below. Go to for logging in.

If you are completely new to 4-H you will enroll online as well, but you first need to select a club and begin attending meetings. 

2024 Parent Guide

When joining a club, you will want to consider:

  • Think about your project interest. Some clubs will work with all projects; some have limits on the type of project they will accept in their club. If you have a specific interest, you will want to look for a club that works with your project interest. If you do not have a project interest at this point, you will want to look for a club that works with all projects.
  • Schedule. Find a club whose meeting schedule is possible for you. Some clubs have a set meeting night and some clubs vary their meeting night to accommodate various family schedules. You will need to contact the Extension Office at 740-335-1150 to get a copy of the club list.
  • Once you have decided on a club(s) that might be a possibility for you, call and ask the organizational club advisor if you can visit at their next club meeting. It is okay to visit more than one club before deciding which is the best club for you.

Across County Line 

Youth are expected to affiliate with the 4-H program in their county of residence.

  • 4-H membership in two counties simultaneously is not permitted.
  • In situations where the county of residence does not have a 4-H program, youth may not join 4-H in another county.
  • If county financial support for Ohio State University Extension ceases to exist, 4-H membership status already established in that county will end on the date the funding ends (established by Extension Administration). 4-H membership of youth, residing in a county that has lost funding, who have preestablished cross-county line 4-H membership agreements in place will be permitted to continue participation in their non-resident county through December 31 of that 4-H membership year.

Cross-county lines membership within Fayette County has a deadline for submission, refer to the 4-H Calendar. In addition to the policies surrounding Across County Lines provided by Ohio 4-H, Fayette County has specific guidelines outlined in the county 4-H Policies.
