September 1 is the start of the new 4-H year. Your age on September 1 is your 4-H age for the year. Youth aged 5-18 are eligible to participate.
Both participating youth and volunteers need to register each year at Florida 4-H Online. Each family has a profile. Youth in the same family use the same profile, and each youth is added separately. Please be sure to keep track of your password, and please do not start a new family registration if you already have one set up. Ask for your password and keep the same information for you family. It is very important to have information up to date in the computer.
The Florida 4-H State Events and Activities Handbook is an excellent resource for all kinds of information about 4-H. Be sure to check it out!
If you need paper copies of either the registration information or the handbook, please email Tish Roland at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for a copy of the document you need.
