How to become involved in 4-H:

Youth

    Becoming involved in 4-H is much easier than you may think. These are the basic requirements to be a 4-H member:

    • School grade
      Anyone in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade can become a 4-H member.  (Students in Grades K-3 are called Clover Kids and they are involved in many of the same things as 4-H'ers in grades 4-12.)

    • Do you want to learn new things?
      Activities that you participate in will challenge your skills, and you will learn from other kids and adults that truly care about you and what you learn.
  • Not much to it...simply have an interest in learning new things. Who do you contact? Sue Pederson at the Allamakee County Extension Office.  Just give her a call or drop on by.
    Want to start now?

       Pick Your Adventure- this will help you decide which project areas to sign up for.  Remember you can always try something different next year. 

If you are a new family to 4-H, stop in at the Extension Office for an enrollment form or email Sue at spederso@iastate.edu.  If you need help finding a 4-H club to join, Sue can help with that, too.

If you are re-enrolling into 4-H, visit our new enrollment system, 4-H Online https://iowa.4honline.com .  For more information on this process you may download the 4-H Online Letter, Postcard or visit  www.extension.iastate.edu/4h/Enrollment/helpsheets.htm  

IMPORTANT: 
* Before you are considered a 4-H member, you must be enrolled by May 1.  If you are a new family, all of your paperwork must be turned into the Extension Office.

Adults

4-H offers many opportunities for you to become involved at the level you feel comfortable. Each level of 4-H offers some exciting opportunities for volunteering, from being a local club leader to volunteering at the Iowa State Fair. Read more about them:

If you have a specific interest in being a volunteer at the county level, feel free to contact the Allamakee County Extension Office. Most counties have opportunities that last from single events to year long activities.
