It is that time of year again!

Time to re-enroll as a 4-H member for 2024!

North Carolina 4-H utilizes an enrollment system for all new and existing 4-H members and volunteers. The online enrollment system is called 4-HOnline. If you created a new family profile in the 4-HOnline system during the 2023 program year – or – if you re-enrolled from a previous year –it is time to update that record for the new 2024 programmatic year.

If you have never created a family profile in the 4-HOnline system and would like to participate in North Carolina 4-H this year, we ask you to take a few minutes and create your account. This information guides the 4-HOnline enrollment / re-enrollment process (See the section below for Families who do not have an existing 4-HOnline account).

Please note that effective January 1, 2023, only youth members and 4-H volunteers who are enrolled in:

  • 4HOnline will be considered active members and/or certified 4-H volunteers.
  • Active status will be required for individuals to participate in 4-H member activities, events, programs, and 4-H trips, as well as for participation as a 4-H volunteer leader. NC 4-H operates on a calendar year, and enrollment begins annually on Jan. 1st.

For families with an existing 4-HOnline account:

Login to your family profile, review and update youth member/volunteer information as needed. The system will walk you through each of the required sections. Note: Some application sections must be completed annually, while others ask that you review areas for any needed changes. When you have updated all the information, click “Enroll for 2024-2025.” Your membership status will be updated and sent to your local 4-H office for approval. Youth profiles should take approximately 10 – 15 minutes to update and submit. Volunteer profiles will take 25 – 30 minutes, including the annual required training video. Click below to access the 4-HOnline system and a link to a “tip sheet” for the re-enrollment process.

For families who do NOT have an existing 4HOnline account:

Please take a few minutes to create a family profile in the 4-HOnline system. Once the family profile is set up, you will add individual youth and/or volunteer members to your family account. Here’s the link to the 4-HOnline system and an easy-to-use “tip sheet” entitled – “Setting Up A NEW Family Profile in 4-HOnline,” which will walk you through the initial sets ofsetting up an account. Creating a new family profile should only take a few minutes. Youth profiles should take approximately 10 – 15 minutes. Volunteer profiles will take 25 -30 minutes, including the annual required training video. Click below to access the 4-HOnline system and a link to a “tip sheet” for the re-enrollment process.

**Note: If you start the enrollment process for the 1st time and the system gives you a notification that reads – “This email address is already in use,” – please stop and contact your 4-H agent.

  • If you receive the notice above – your 4-H record has been started in the system, and we ask that you contact your 4-H agent for your temporary password. When you have your temporary password, go to the 4-H Online website, enter your email address and temporary password, leave the role as family, and click “Login.” Click the orange “Continue to Family” button. Log in to the family, review and update youth member/volunteer information, and click “Enroll for 2024-2025.” Your membership will be updated and sent to your local 4-H office for approval.
