Join 4-H

Wondering How to Get Involved?

Our enrollment period ends May 15th for the current 4-H year.  Find out how you can get enrolled so you can participate in this outstanding program!  This page is your one stop shop on how to join 4-H!
1.  Choose a Club
You can choose a club based on location, age, or special interest. If you are having trouble, please contact the County Youth Coordinator at, who will be happy to assist you.  It is important that you make contact with the club leaders, as they will give you specific information about the club such as meeting locations, dates and times, club rules and expectations.
2.  Register
 The 4-H Online 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.  There is an annual program enrollment fee of $15 to enroll in 4-H which is payable to the club leader, and may vary from club to club based on grants or fundraising.  This fee helps to support the county state 4-H Program.  If you feel that this fee would be a financial burden, financial aid is available from the Iowa 4-H Foundation by visiting their website at, or contact your County Youth Coordinator for assistance.
3.  Learn about 4-H

Make sure you spend some time familiarizing yourself with the 4-H program.  Look for project areas that interest you by checking in the Pick-Your-Adventure Guide.  For even more information, you can check out "Guide for New 4-H Members" or consider attending our regularly scheduled yearly "4-H Orientation Family Night".  You can also check our calendar for more information about events going on in Winnebago County.
If you have questions please feel free to contact your County Youth Coordinator, Sloan Alberhasky, at 641-584-2261 or
