When Can You Join 4-H?

Project enrollment is taken between October 1 and December 31. If youth join after the project enrollment period, they still can participate in the 4-H program. Clubs involve members in community pride projects, demonstrations, fund raising activities, club tours, organization, and fun. Youth would also be able to visit project meetings in order to see what projects they would like to take the following project enrollment period.

How Do You Join 4-H?

Youth and their parents are encouraged to contact one or two club leaders to find out when the club meets, and what projects the club offers. Once a club is chosen, youth enroll with that club leader. You may also contact the La Plata County Extension Office at 2500 Main Ave. or phone 970-382-6465. Staff will ask location of residence and what projects the child is interested in. We will then give you the name of clubs that would fit your needs.
