Happy New Year! It is hard to believe we are starting a New Year, but look forward to an exciting time with Caldwell County 4-H in 2020!

As of January 1, enrollment for 2020 is open. All enrollment information must be submitted into 4HOnline for this year. All active 4-H members and volunteers must update their information each January. To participate in 4-H events like Summer Exploring or camp, youth must also be enrolled.

Please read the section below titled “Transitioning from Paper Enrollment” for information about how we can assist you if you are unable to use 4HOnline to enroll on your own.

General enrollment tips:

  • In case of an emergency, please provide insurance name and policy number for your child or children.
  • Take time to list any food or medication allergies.
  • Complete your physical mailing address, phone number (including emergency numbers) and email address to stay up to date with 4-H happenings throughout the year.

What is 4HOnline?

“4HOnline” is a data management system used nationally by 4-H.

First-timers with 4HOnline

We highly recommend using the step-by-step enrollment guide for your first time using 4HOnline! The system sorts people by family, so each family will have one login.

Did you enroll online in 2019?

If you already have a 4HOnline profile from last year, please reference the “Re-enrolling in 4HOnline” document for assistance!

What will a family see after January 1? On family member screen, they will see all of their family members listed as inactive. They will need to click “Edit” and then click “Enroll for 2020 – 2021.”

Some personal information rolls over from the previous year however, not everything transfers over RE: university guidelines. Thus families are shown all “Personal Information” screens so, that they can make changes if necessary and / or required.

Health form information will be empty (i.e. it will need to be completed again for the 2020 – 2021 program year). Note: We are exploring whether this form can be rolled over annually with a confirmation check-off box.

All authorization fields will be empty (i.e. Photo Release, etc.). Thus, the family member will need to review and provide consent annually.

Youth members must designate at least one (1) project annually (this is a project the youth anticipates completing this year). *Previous clubs and projects will remain a part of their permeant record and can be accessed by going to the family screen, under member reports, and clicking on the family member’s name and “Member – Enrollment History.”

Transitioning from Paper Enrollment

If you are unable to access or use 4HOnline, please first fill in a paper enrollment form. Then, schedule an appointment with Sarah Moyer at sarah_moyer@ncsu.edu or Diana Ford at diana_ford@ncsu.edu, and one of us will assist you in entering the enrollment information into 4HOnline.
This must be done with a parent or guardian present because all information entered by staff must be approved by a parent or guardian before the youth member(s) is approved.
We want all 4-H members to be safe and properly cared for at all 4-H functions, and we use enrollment information to help staff and volunteers do so.
