Noble County 4-H and Youth

What is 4-H? 4-H began over 100 years ago, and has since grown into the largest youth development program in the nation. 4-H prepares young people to be leaders in their community and around the world through hands-on experiences alongside their peers and caring adults. Backed by a network of more than 6 million youth, 540,000 adult volunteers, 3,500 professionals, and more than 60 million alumni; 4-H delivers research-based programming around positive youth development. 4-H is delivered through America's 109 land-grant universities and the Cooperative Extension Service reaching every corner of our nation.

Who Can Join 4-H?  4-H is for anyone and everyone in grades 3-12. Mini 4-H is for youth in grades K-2.

How Do I Join 4-H?  Youth must annually enroll online in 4HOnline (, our exclusive 4-H data management system.  The enrollment window is October 1-January 15.  We can help match you up with a 4-H club in your township or community and help you contact the club leader.  

For grades 3-12, the annual Indiana 4-H Program Fee of $15 and the Noble County Program Fee of $5, totaling $20, will be due at enrollment, and these fees will be collected via 4HOnline. Mini 4-H members in grades K-2 do not pay the state program fee, so their total is only $5. If you don’t have a credit/debit card or are not comfortable using your card online, we can make special arrangements at the Extension Office. Families who have more than three children participating in the program will only have to pay for three state program fees.
