Lane County 4-H is organized around 4-H Community Clubs, where kids with a variety of projects meet together once a month as a 4-H Community Club. 4-H emphasizes LEADERSHIP, BELONGING, INDEPENDENCE, and MASTERY. Being a part of their 4-H Community Club helps youth learn about a broad variety of projects, build relationships with other youth and adults in their community, practice leadership and decision-making skills, and work together on service projects.

Would you like to join Lane County 4-H?
STEP ONE: CHOOSE a 4-H Community Club that you would like to join! You do not have to join the Community Club nearest your house. You can join any one you’d like. But, you do need to choose the 4-H Community Club that you will meet with once a month. It will be your ‘home base’ for your 4-H experience and your projects. You can change 4-H Community Clubs at any time.
STEP TWO: ATTEND a 4-H Community Club Open House in October and ENROLL in 4-H!
The October Open Houses will not only be fun, they will also be useful! You will get to meet 4-H Leaders and other 4-H youth. You can receive, fill-out, and return your 4-H Enrollment Form, pay the enrollment fee and turn in the scholarship form. Helpful, friendly people will be there to help answer your questions about 4-H and the paperwork. You will get useful information on projects being offered and upcoming events!
Another reason to visit in October is the Early Enrollment Incentive. If you return your enrollment forms and fee to an October Community Club Open House or to the OSU Extension Office before October 31st you receive a $10 discount on 4-H enrollment and a $5 discount on Cloverbud enrollment.
STEP THREE: Meet with your 4-H Community Club each month, sign-up to start working with a project group, look at the calendar and keep an eye out for 4-H events to be a part of!
We strongly encourage you to attend a 4-H Community Club Open House in October if you would like to join 4-H.
If you aren’t able to enroll at a 4-H Community Club Open House, you can return your enrollment forms and payment to the OSU Extension Lane County Office at 783 Grant Street in Eugene (between Garfield and Chambers) Monday through Thursday between the hours of 10am and 1pm and 2pm and 5pm.
Interested in a specific project area? Contact the 4-H Leader of the Community Club you’re interested in to learn more about project area opportunities. We are continually adding new project areas in Lane County.
