Our enrollment period starts at the beginning of September.  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! Click on any words in blue to take you to another page or document. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Step 1 CloverChoose a Club

You can choose a club based on location, age, or special interest. To see the different clubs in Crawford County, see the map below. Each green dot is a club, where they meet, and the head adult leader in charge of the club. Be careful not to overlook clubs as some have the same dot if they meet at the same location. If you are having trouble, please contact the County Youth Coordinator, Brynna, 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, and if they are accepting new members.

Step 2 CloverRegister

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.  There is an annual program enrollment fee of $30 to enroll in 4-H and $20 for Clover Kids. This fee goes to support the state 4-H program. There is assistance available through the Iowa 4-H Foundation. If you need assistance with re-enrollment, please check out our "Help Sheet for Re-Enrolling Members"or call our office at 712-263-4697. New families can contact the office for first time registration forms or you can register through the 4hOnline system. The help sheet for new families is located here-
