Member enrollment

We are excited to announce Missouri 4-H Center for Youth Development is transitioning enrollment to Missouri 4HOnline.  Please log on at mo.4honline.com.  A link to the detailed, step-by-step instructions  is included on the login screen, but we think you will find the system very easy to navigate. State dues for Missouri 4-H are $20 with the additional $5 for Howell County. Until dues have ben paid, in full, the members enrollment status will remain in pending. 

If you have any questions or comments, please email/call Greg Carter at carterga@missouri.edu or 417.256.2391. **Please be understanding, as local faculty and staff are still learning the system,  just like YOU! .**
