How to Join Solano County 4-H

Please use the left navigation bar to reach the county enrollment resources.


What 4-H is all about...and how to join

4-H is a non-formal educational youth program, conducted by the University of California Cooperative Extension as authorized by federal and state statutes. In each county, the Local Extension Staff (County Director, 4-H Youth Advisor, and 4-H Program Representative) has the authority to administer the program in accordance with University and Extension policy.  The purpose of 4-H is to help young people discover and develop their potential.  4-H encourages young people to set their own goals and make their own plans and decisions.

This helps youth mature and build their self-confidence.  By being part of a group, 4-H'ers learn to understand other people and to cooperate with them. These are two basic skills for a happy, useful life.

For more information on how you can become involved in 4-H, please complete this Information Survey.

 In an effort to offer 4-H members a greater variety of projects, some volunteers offer their 4-H projects on a countywide basis. 

We will continue to manage countywide projects in the same fashion as last year. Countywide projects are associated with the primary club of the leader offering the project.  

To enroll in a countywide project:

Parent/guardian goes to https://california.4honline.com and completes the following steps:

  • On the clubs tab select the host club and add the club
  • Next, on the projects tab:
  • Select the host club tied to the countywide project
  • Select the countywide project
  • Select years in the project
  • Click add project

Projects in green are current for the 2016-17 program year.
