Youth membership in 4-H is based on the following age categories:
For each of the above categories youth must turn the entry age during the 4-H year, October 1 through September 30. That is youth who turn 5, 9, 12, and 14, between October 1 and September 30, participate in these respective categories. Eligibility for 4-H membership terminates on December 31 of the year the member has his/her 19th birthday.
4-H provides a wide variety of educational opportunities and experiences. Some clubs specifically focus on the Cloverbuds (youth ages 5-8), some clubs require youth to be at least 9 years old to join, some clubs are just for teens and others are for youth of all ages. Therefore, you should ask about age requirements when you request information.
