For club information click here, or please contact the County Youth Coordinator (515-961-6237). We are happy to assist you in contacting a club leader. It is important that you make contact with the club leaders, as they can give you specific information about the club such as meeting times, special club rules, and whether they are already at full membership.

Step 2: Enroll

The 4hOnline database is the method for online registration. The Database tells the club leader and the extension office who you are, where you live, and what your project interests are.  To enroll click on 4hOnline then click on the button in front of the line saying, "I don't have a profile," and enter your family email address in the family email field.  Then enter a password (retaining it in a safe place, because this will be your password thoughout your 4-H career and where you will re-enroll next year, identify your projects and your animals for fair and register for the Iowa State Fair. To re-enroll enter your 4hOnline family email profile address and already established 4hOnline password. If you cannot remember, please call the Extension office (515-961-6237).  Please do not add another email profile.  If you have forgotten your password, check the "I forgot my password box."  Then click on "Send My Password." Shortly, you will receive an email from 4hOnline.  From that email copy / paste your temporary password in the 4hOnline password field (it is case sensitive). The next screen will ask you to change the email. The email box should still show your family email with "Family" chosen as your Role.  Click "Login" then scroll down to Member/Volunteer List and click on the Edit button at the end of the name.  Verify information and modify when necessary.  When asked, please input parent/guardian name and child's name.  This will signify that you and the 4-H'er understand, agree, and accept the liability, medical, publicity, and behavioral terms and agreements and confirm so by electronically signing.   
 

There is also an annual program fee of $40 to enroll in 4-H. Currently we don't have the ability to accept payment on-line. This fee helps to support the Warren County state 4-H program. If you feel that this fee would constitute an undue financial burden, finanacial aid is available from the Iowa 4-H Foundation by visiting their website at Iowa 4-H Foundation. If the Foundation determines that there is a financial need, they may offer up to $30 per applicant. 

Step 3: Learn about 4-H
You should spend some time familiarizing yourself with the 4-H program. Look for a project in your interest areas by checking in the Pick-Your-Adventure Guide. Orient yourself to 4-H with our "New Member Guide.
