Become a 4-H Member

Want to Join 4-H?  The Linn County 4-H program offers many different clubs and projects to choose from.

Youth in 4-H are placed in divisions based on their grade in school. Youth in grades K-3 may participate in the 4-H Cloverbud program. Cloverbuds are led by trained 4-H volunteers. This non-competitive, group-oriented program allows youth to explore many topics such as natural resources, community, foods, science, art, and many more. Youth in grades 4-12 may join 4-H project or community clubs, which are also led by trained volunteer 4-H leaders. Divisions are broken down by grade as follows:


Grades K-3 Cloverbuds
Grades 4-6 Juniors
Grades 7-9 Intermediates
Grades 10-12 Seniors

Visit with adults you come in contact with and see if any of them are interested in becoming a 4-H volunteer leader. We are always looking for new 4-H leaders who are willing to lead or help lead a group of youth.
