4-H Enrollment Time Is Upon Us

— Written By

Hey All,

NC 4-H has upgraded our online 4-H enrollment system with 4-H Online 2.0. Below is instructions on how to enroll for 2021. If you have any questions class us at 652-8104.

Welcome back to the new 4-H year!
The first step to becoming an active 4-H member, volunteer, or participant during this year’s 4-H program (2021) is to re-enroll. If you are a 4-H member under 18, your parent or guardian can renew your membership. *New youth members, volunteers, and participants are strongly encouraged to enroll now too.

North Carolina 4-H uses an online system, called 4-HOnline 2.0, to manage 4-H memberships, clubs, projects, activities, and communications. *All members who participate in North Carolina 4-H must have a 4-HOnline 2.0 profile (Note: *Due to COVID-19 local 4-H programs may not require youth who participate in “virtual-only” programs to complete the entire 4-HOnline 2.0 enrollment process.)

4-HOnline 2.0 accounts are family-based, which means every family creates a “master” profile with its own login ID and password. A member file is then created within the family profile for each individual involved in North Carolina 4-H.

If you were previously enrolled and / or if someone in your family was involved in
North Carolina 4-H from 2018 to 2020, you probably have an existing family profile
in 4-HOnline 2.0. Previous members should use their existing login and
password to access their family profile in the new 4-H Online 2.0 platform.
*Members who are re-enrolling should NOT create a new account. If you need
assistance accessing your existing family profile, review the steps in this guide. If
necessary, contact your local 4-H Office for assistance.

NEW Members (youth and volunteers), enrolling for the first time, should click the
“Don’t have an account?” link and begin the registration process.
During both the re-enrollment and enrollment process, members will be asked a
series of important questions. These questions establish the type of member profile
the system will generate. Please review the types of 4-H members before you re-enroll or enroll for the first time.

Types of Members:

  • Youth Members are automatically entered as either a Cloverbud or a Member based on their date of birth.
    • Cloverbuds are youth ages 5 – 7 years of age (as of Jan. 1, 2021).
    • Members are youth ages 8 – 18 years of age (as of Jan. 1, 2021 and not have passed their 18th birthday on Jan. 1 st of the year they are participating).
  • Volunteers are adults who have been / or will be / screened and certified as 4-H volunteers. *Note: Any adult or guardian that desires to work directly with members in any capacity, such as helping with club activities, should enroll as a Volunteer.
  • *Participants can be youth or adults who do not wish to join a 4-H program at this time but may want to attend an event or activity that is open to non-4-H members (*Note: Non-4-H member opportunities are limited). Individuals who select this option will have the ability to complete the full enrollment process if they chose to from their profile page.

North Carolina 4-H has created a new 4-HOnline 2.0 Recourse Site that houses a
variety of tip sheets, videos, and step-by-step instructions for using the new program including:

  • Family Enrollment Guide
  • How to Re-Enroll
  • New Member Enrollment
  • Member Password Support
  • 4-H Club Leader Guide to Using 4-HOnline 2.0

Begin your re-enrollment / enrollment process now – 4-HOnline 2.0.

If you have any questions, concerns and / or need additional support with 4-HOnline 2.0 please feel free to reach out to me directly.
