How To Be A 4-H Member
The Texas 4-H Youth Development Program offers many opportunities for both youth and adults to experience 4-H at the local, county, district, state, national, and international level! 4-H Enrollment is conducted by the County 4-H Office in each county. To maintain the level of programming and opportunities in the Texas 4-H Youth Development Program, an annual participant fee is necessary for each 4-H member. The participant fee is $25, or $20 if enrolled from August 15th to October 31st.

Recordkeeping is a very valuable skill taught to members of the Texas 4-H program. Members are encouraged to keep project records and have these records reviewed annually by submitting a Texas 4-H Recordbook. The primary purposes of completing a recordbook are for a young person to develop the skills necessary to set goals, work toward achieving those goals, reflect on his/her experiences, and set new and higher goals for themselves. A secondary benefit is to prepare young people for the process of completing quality academic scholarship applications. Click here for more information.
