Duval 4-H New Year Kick-Off Party

Happy New Year!! The 2022-2023 4-H year is upon us and we started off with a party to welcome new and current 4-H members!

Duval 4-H families celebrated the new year at Boone Park sharing 4-H with community members, jumping in the bounce house, playing yard games, eating popsicles, and snuggling 4-H project bunnies!

4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization. Over 230,000 members in the State of Florida help to make up the community of more than 6.5 million young people across America. 4-H is a non-formal, practical educational program for youth. Florida 4-H is the youth development program of Florida Cooperative Extension, a part of the University of Florida IFAS. 4-H is open to all youth, ages 5-18 and serves youth from all backgrounds and interests. It reaches both boys and girls through 4-H clubs, projects, individual and family learning, mentoring, camping, and school enrichment.

How to Enroll in 4-H?


All 4-H members and volunteers create profiles in 4-H Online. This system is used to keep track of all youth and volunteers that are involved with the 4-H program. It will track your project, how you will sign-up for events, and list your emergency contact information. Be sure to complete the information fully and accurately.


Florida 4-H membership fees are $20 per child. This fee is for youth ages 8 and older (as of September 1st). $10.00 will go directly to the local county 4-H program. $10.00 will go to the state 4-H Program to help improve, update, and modernize state-level events, activities, and competitions for 4-H youth.

Membership fees are paid through the 4-H Online system when you enroll in 4-H.

If the membership fee total is more than your family can afford at this time, please contact the Duval County 4-H office for scholarship information
