How to Join 4-H

4-H is easy to join and well worth the three easy steps!

1. Look through the club list at the bottom of the page and find a club that meets at a location, time and day of the month that is the most convenient for you. If you are having trouble deciding between a couple of clubs, contact the club leaders or the Rusk County Extension Office to find out more information about the club projects and activities that they participate in during the year.

2. Contact the leader of the club you would like to join. Let the leader know you are interested in attending their next club meeting and confirm the time and place.

3. Once you’ve found a club that best fits you and your families preferences you can begin the enrollment process in 4HOnline. If you are in need of help please contact the Extension office for help from staff or the 4-H Educator.
