All 4-H members and volunteers must enroll or re-enroll every year. The 4-H year is Oct. 1–Sept. 30. New members and fair projects may be updated through June 15.

The website to enroll or re-enroll is


The process is easy and only takes a few minutes per member or volunteer. Only parents/guardians may enroll 4-H members. Each 4-H household will need to initially set up a profile in which the 4-H youth and/or volunteers in the household will be added. There is no fee to enroll in 4-H in Lancaster County.

NOTE: NOTE: The only required health information is regarding allergies. The rest is needed only if a child is planning to attend an overnight camp or campus event.

PROJECTS: When signing up for individual projects — note the abbreviations for the project areas. We have added the abbreviations to the 4-H Project List (pdf) to help you locate an individual project. For example, you will find “Sketchbook Crossroads” under C&FS which stands for Consumer and Family Science instead of under ‘S’ or under ‘Art.’

INDEPENDENT MEMBERS: 4-H members enrolling as independent need to select “Lancaster Independent” under “club.”

FFA MEMBERS: FFA members need to select TCA FFA, Crete FFA, Norris FFA, Raymond Central FFA or Waverly FFA under “club.”

VOLUNTEERS: 4-H leaders need to re-enroll. 4-H club organizational leaders are now able to view their 4-H club’s roster online, but must be enrolled for the current year and must contact Extension to set up a password.

For enrollment to be complete, at least one project needs to be selected as well as choosing a club (or “Lancaster Independent”).

If you have questions about the process or need access to a computer, call Extension at 402-441-7180.
