Join 4-H

Membership enrollment

4-H programs are open to all youth who are 5 to 18 years old by January 1. You may live in the country, in a small town or a big city and still be part of 4-H. Getting involved in Saline County 4-H is easy; Missouri 4-H Center for Youth Development has a easy 4HOnline enrollment system. 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 Saline County. For 2017, Saline County 4-H Council has elected to pay $15.00 of each member's dues. For 2017, the total dues members must pay is $10. This is subject to change in the coming years. Until dues have been paid in full, the member's enrollment status will remain in pending. 

If you have any questions or comments, please email or call Taylor Bryant at bryantt@missouri.edu or 660.886.6908.

 

Volunteer enrollment

How would you like to inspire youth in your community? Do you have a skill or talent you would like to share or do you just want to give back to your community? We are always looking for caring adults to help the Saline County 4-H program to continue to grow.

To get started we need you to fill out an Annual Background Check Consent Form (LG639). The form can be turned into a club leader or the Saline County Extension Center.

A link to a detailed, step-by-step instructions is located at the Missouri 4-H website.

If you have any questions or comments, please email or call Taylor Bryant at bryantt@missouri.edu or 660.886.6908.

How to join 4-H

University of Missouri Extension 4-H

Empowering young people to reach their full potential

4-H brings young people, ages 5 to 19, and adults together to learn everyday skills through hands-on learning. Working on activities from animal and plant sciences to robotics, 4-H’ers learn problem-solving skills that can make a positive impact upon our community. Through 4-H, young people learn to:

  • meet the diverse challenges of today’s world;
  • build self-confidence;
  • learn responsibility; and
  • make positive decisions.
4-H clubs

4-H clubs are open to ages 8 to 18. Clubs meet monthly for group activities and club business. Each club elects officers and has an approved adult leader who supervises club activities. Club members also enroll in projects in their areas of interest.

With projects on more than 75 topics, 4-H has something to interest every child. Here are just a few of the opportunities 4-H offers—geocaching, robotics, international exchanges, horsemanship, pets, starting a business, arts and crafts, raising animals, woodworking, photography and gardening.

Clover Kids clubs

Clover Kids introduces 5- to 7-year-olds to the 4-H experience. In Clover Kids, children learn how to get along with others, work in groups, explore their interests, while building self-confidence. Clover Kids do not enroll in projects or raise animals, and do not participate in competitive events, contests or shows.

How to join

Joining 4-H is as easy as contacting the extension center. A staff member will explain the enrollment process and membership dues. In addition to dues, some projects may require a small investment to get started, and there may be a fee for materials, trips or other activities.

Young people are welcome to join at any time. The 4-H program year runs from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31. Certain activities may have participation deadlines.

Resources

4-H Online enrollment system
Missouri 4-H Clover—A guide to 4-H projects, activities and publications. It is designed to assist volunteers, members and their families select projects and activities, and set goals.

Be a 4-H volunteer

Adult volunteers are essential to 4-H. Adult volunteers serve as club or project leaders, help with county or regional events, chair committees and organize fund raisers. You don't have to be a parent or grandparent of the 4-H member to get involved. All volunteers are screened for child abuse and neglect, as well criminal records, before they are accepted and each year thereafter. As a volunteer, University of Missouri Extension will provide you with training so you will be well-prepared and successful as an adult leader. The orientation includes information on 4-H history and the educational framework, the characteristics of age groups, character development and safety.
