Join Washtenaw 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 Washtenaw County along with the contact information of the club's administrative leader. Clubs are located throughout Washtenaw County and are listed in the brochure by project and city/town.
If you are wishing to just attend state level events and not be apart of a club, that is okay as well, however, local scholarship opportunities will vary based on event. Instead of listing a club in the participation section you are will list Washtenaw County 4-H - General Experience instead. Youth will than be open to all the opportunities in the Washtenaw County 4-H Youth program, however, their won’t be any monthly meetings or club functions for them to attend. It would just be the trips, camps, county events, etc. in its place. Youth are able to join multiple clubs as well. For example, if a youth wants to be part of a community club and also a dog club.
2. Contact the Club
Families/Members wishing to join Washtenaw County 4-H are encouraged to contact the Club Coordinator/Administrative Leader listed in the club brochure. Club Coordinators will be able to provide more information about the club and the types of projects/activities the club participants in throughout the year.
