4-H Online 2.0
January 25, 2021
Welcome back to the new 4-H year!
The first step to becoming an active 4-H member, volunteer, or participant during this year’s 4-H program (2021) is to re-enroll. If you are a 4-H member under 18, your parent or guardian can renew your membership. *New youth members, volunteers, and participants are strongly encouraged to enroll now too.
North Carolina 4-H uses an online system, called 4-H Online 2.0, to manage 4-H memberships, clubs, projects, activities, and communications. *All members who participate in North Carolina 4-H must have a 4-H Online 2.0 profile (Note: *Due to COVID-19 local 4-H programs may not require youth who participate in “virtual-only” programs to complete the entire 4-H Online 2.0 enrollment process.)
4-H Online 2.0 accounts are family-based, which means every family creates a “master” profile with its own login ID and password. A member file is then created within the family profile for each individual involved in North Carolina 4-H.
If you were previously enrolled and/or if someone in your family was involved in North Carolina 4-H from 2018 to 2020, you probably have an existing family profile in 4-H Online 2.0. Previous members should use their existing login and password to access their family profile in the new 4-H Online 2.0 platform. *Members who are re-enrolling should NOT create a new account. If you need assistance accessing your existing family profile, review the steps in this guide. If necessary, contact your local 4-H office for assistance.
NEW Members (youth and volunteers), enrolling for the first time, should click the “Don’t have an account?” link and begin the registration process.
During both the re-enrollment and enrollment process members will be asked a series of important questions. These questions establish the type of member profile the system will generate. Please review the types of 4-H members before you re-enroll or enroll for the first time.
Types of Members:
- Youth Members are automatically entered as either a Cloverbud or a Member based on their date of birth.
- Cloverbuds are youth ages 5 – 7 years of age (as of January 1, 2021).
- Members are youth ages 8 – 18 years of age (as of January 1, 2021, and not have passed their 18th birthday on January 1 of the year they are participating).
- Volunteers are adults who have been / or will be / screened and certified as 4-H *Note: Any adult or guardian that desires to work directly with members in any capacity, such as helping with club activities, should enroll as a Volunteer.
- *Participants can be youth or adults who do not wish to join a 4-H program at this time but may want to attend an event or activity that is open to non-4-H members (*Note: Non-4-H member opportunities are limited). Individuals who select this option will have the ability to complete the full enrollment process if they chose to from their profile page.
North Carolina 4-H has created a new 4-H Online 2.0 Recourse site that houses a variety of tip sheets, videos, and step-by-step instructions for using the new program including:
- Family Enrollment Guide
- How to Re-Enroll
- New Member Enrollment
