4. Review the New Family 4-H Folder information given to you by the Organizational Leader.

5. Select the project(s) that you are interested in for the year.

  • Youth in K5 – 2nd grade enroll in Cloverbud and no other project.
  • Youth in 3rd – 13th grade can select any project(s). It is suggested that youth in 3rd and 4th grade enroll in the Exploring project.
  • Start out by selecting one or two projects. More can be selected if youth and parents/guardians feel they can handle it.
