4-H Youth Development

4-H PledgeThe 4-H year begins October 1 and ends September 30 of the following year.

  •  Members live in towns, in the country, and on farms.  4-H is open to all youth regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, or disability.
  • Kansas 4-H Youth Development has a policy for open enrollment.  Eligible youth may enroll in Kansas  4-H Youth Development programs at any time of the year.  
  • Youth wanting to join must be 7 years old and not older than 18 prior to January 1 of the current year in order to be eligible for 4-H.  4-H members who are selected as winners in late summer or fall, and who turn 19 before January 1, cannot compete in state or national contests, awards, or recognition programs. 
  • Youth ages 5—6 years old prior to January 1 of the current 4-H year are eligible to participate in the Cloverbuds project which is offered through the 4-H clubs.  Cloverbuds members are encouraged to attend Cloverbuds county-wide project meetings.  (See Cloverbuds Section for policies.)
