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.)
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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
* 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.
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.
