All 4-H members and volunteers must enroll or re-enroll every year. The 4-H year is Oct. 1–Sept. 30. To participate in 4-H at county and state fairs, you must enroll or re-enroll by June 15. New members and volunteers may enroll any time of the year.

The website to enroll or re-enroll is 4-H Online at


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. For returning families/volunteers, please do not create a new account — use your previous log-in credentials. There is no fee to enroll in 4-H in Lancaster County.

New in Fall 2023: The project listing in 4-H Online has been narrowed down from 200+ projects to approximately 50 youth project areas. For example: “Design Decisions” is now under “Home Design & Restoration.” “Aerospace” is now under “STEM: Rockets.” “STEAM Clothing 1” is now under “Textile, Quilts & Apparel.” See the 2023–24 4-H 4-H Project List (pdf).


  • The only required health information is regarding allergies and permission to treat. The rest is needed only if a child is planning to attend an overnight camp or campus event.
  • Response to "Image Permission" is required.
  • For enrollment to be complete, at least one project needs to be selected as well as choosing a club (or Lancaster Independent or FFA chapter).

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

FFA MEMBERS: FFA members need to select their FFA chapter under “Club.”

VOLUNTEERS: 4-H club and project leaders must re-enroll every year. Choose organizational leader or project leader when enrolling, not project volunteer.

CLUB ROSTERS: Currently enrolled 4-H club leaders can access their 4-H club’s roster at by calling 402-441-7180 or emailing to receive a password.

If you have questions about the process, contact the 4-H staff at or 402-441-7180.
