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 ages 5-8 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 ages 9-19 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:


Ages: Division: Birthday between:
Cloverbuds Sept. 2, 2006 - Sept. 1, 2010
Juniors Sept. 2, 2003 - Sept. 1, 2006
Intermediates Sept. 2, 2000 - Sept. 1, 2003
Seniors Sept. 2, 1996 - Sept. 1, 2000


The 4-H year runs October 1st to September 30th.  As October gets closer we will have a form to fill out on this page to start you on the 4-H journey.

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.
