Join Jackson County 4-H!

We offer an abundance of educational, fun, and interactive programming for every interest! The process in becoming a 4-H member is as follows:

1. Choose a Club

Each club is different from one another, as they offer variety of projects, membership size, activity involvement and location. Attached is a club program brochure that goes over the clubs that are listed in Jackson County along with the contact information of the club's administrative leader. Clubs are located throughout Jackson County and are listed in the brochure by where they meet.

2. Contact the Club

Members wishing to join Jackson County 4-H are encouraged to contact the Club Administrative Leader listed in the club brochure. Club leaders will be able to provide more information about the club and the types of projects/activities the club participants in throughout the year.

3. Sign Up in 4-H Online

Members wishing to enroll in 4-H, may do so through the 4honline enrollment system. For members who do not have access to a computer or the internet may fill out paper accommodations upon request. Members are grouped by families in the 4honline system, so you can add all youth family members who wish to join. Below is a 4honline Family Guide that will walk you through the process of enrolling online. If any issues do arise, please contact the Jackson County MSU Extension Office at 517-788-4292.
