What is 4-H? 4-H is the largest youth serving organization in the U.S.A. It is a volunteer-led organization that reaches youth through a variety of programs in both rural and urban settings.  4-H programs are hands-on, age-appropriate, and university-based. 4-H helps youth improve their self-confidence, learn responsibility and subject matter, and develop leadership, civic engagement, communication, and decision-making skills that can be applied over a lifetime.

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

How Do I Join 4-H?  Youth must annually enroll online in 4HOnline (v2.4honline.com), 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.  Many thanks to those who enrolled in the Indiana 4-H Youth Development Program using the  system. 

For grades 3-12, the annual Indiana 4-H Program Fee of $15 and the Steuben 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.

Use the electronic resources provided above and lean into the human resources we have available as well. Tami Mosier, 4-H Educator, and Linda Bidlack, Office Manager, are willing to help provide a positive 4-H youth development experience for you and your family. Call us at 260-668-1000 Ext. 1400!
