4-H began over 100 years ago, and has since grown into the largest youth development program in the nation. 4-H prepares young people to be leaders in their community and around the world through hands-on experiences ​alongside their peers and caring adults. Are you ready to join the largest youth program in the nation?

All 4-H Members & All Adult Volunteers Must Enroll Annually

Enroll now at http://v2.4honline.com. Download step-by-step instructions on navigating the 4HOnline system on Google Drive at https://bit.ly/4HEnrollmentResources. When using 4HOnline, DO NOT USE Internet Explorer. Use Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari. (Volunteers: find more information about your annual enrollment requirements by clicking here.) Enrollment Target for 4-H Youth Members: January 15th, 2022.

Program Fees:
Porter County Program Fee is $5 for K-12th grade 4-Hers.
Indiana Program Fee is $15 for 3rd-12th grade 4-Hers (families enrolling more than three 3rd-12th graders will be provided a discount for state program fees, which is calculated during the 4HOnline enrollment process.)

Program fees are non-refundable and help keep our program operating… and they minimize (though don’t eliminate) our need for fundraisers! Your one-time per year program fee opens all facets of the world of 4-H: participation in traditional community (township) clubs, special interest “Spark” clubs, the Porter County Fair, and more!

ATTENTION: Paying online with your credit card rather than selecting to pay by check expedites your active status. Your enrollment is not active until your payment is received at Purdue. Your enrollment must be active to submit state scholarships in January, enroll your cattle in February, and more.

Do you have questions?

The Porter County 4-H Family Resource Guide includes information on connecting with a 4-H Club near you, as well as answers to many of the questions you may have about the 4-H program. The guide includes a list of community 4-H clubs, along with leader contact information. You are encouraged to contact the club leaders to confirm their meeting times and activities to make sure you find a club that meets your needs.

See the Porter County 4-H Handbook to learn even more about the 4-H program and find descriptions of each of our 4-H projects (topic/subject matter areas) to help you choose the projects in which you would like to enroll.
