Membership Guidelines

  • Membership Ages: 5-18 years old, determined as of September 1, 2017, or grades K-12.
  • Ages 5-7 may enroll only in the United Clovers 4-H Club or projects designated for their age.
  • Membership is open to all youth regardless of race, creed, color, sex, national origin, handicap, or geographic location within Holmes County.
  • A $20.00 annual membership fee is required for all community club members ages 8-18.  Membership fees do not apply to youth ages 5-7 (Cloverbuds), members other than community club members, short-term members, volunteers, or adults. Please see Membership Fee Information below.
  • There are no ownership requirements (such as a horse, steer, sewing machine, etc.) to belong to a club or enroll in a 4-H project.
  • Members are expected but not required to participate in monthly club meetings.
  • A member cannot be enrolled in the same project or event in more than one county.

Membership Fee

  • You will enroll your youth in Holmes County 4-H visiting the 4-H Online website as per the instructions below or by application you can download online or pick up at the 4-H Office.
  • If you enroll online, you should expect an email with a link to an e-commerce online storefront where the membership fee can be paid using a debit or credit card.
  • If you enroll by a paper application, you will pay Florida 4-H directly by check made out to the University of Florida or you can still visit the Florida 4-H website link to an e-commerce online storefront where the membership fee can be paid using a debit or credit card.
  • If a membership fee is a barrier for any youth to join 4-H, please contact your local county 4-H Agent. Holmes County 4-H will never exclude a youth from 4-H for inability to pay.  We will work to find a financial solution as needed.
