Signing Up with 4-H Connect

To participate in our various Club events you will need to join 4-H.  

***Please provide feedback on this how to document to the club Manager*****

You will join 4-H at the “4-H Connect” website.   This website is also the location to sign up for State wide 4-H events and to complete your annual enrollment.   You also can review the monthly 4H newsletter on this site. So it is important to retain your login information.

But first, let’s cover what is 4-H CONNECT . . .
  • The OFFICIAL Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program database for ENROLLED 4-H members and volunteers.
  • NOT a database for counties/clubs/families to enter family members (i.e. siblings, grandparents, etc) that are not directly involved as a 4-H member or volunteer.
  • A partnership between the 4-H family and the county Extension Office. We encourage all 4-H families to become familiar with 4-H CONNECT in order to prevent “meltdowns” at cruical times of enrollment and/or registration! Please work with your county Extension Office for any questions or problems you maybe experiencing with the system.
  • Based on “zero-based enrollment.” This means that each year at the start of the enrollment cycle membership in Texas 4-H goes to zero and everyone must re-enroll. This process is based on federal accounting policies.
  • A secured database that is in compliance with the PCI Security Standards Council. The Texas 4-H & Youth Development Program and the 4HOnline company work closely to monitor and ensure the highest level of protection for information stored on the system. Texas 4-H, nor 4HOnline, does not share oR sell any personal information to third party vendors without your knowledge or permission.
FOR NEW 4-H MEMBERS
  • You will be required to set up a family profile on   4-H CONNECT, the on-line Texas 4-H Enrollment and Event registration program. The website can be found at www.texas4-h.org, then click on the “Join 4-H/Event Registration” link.
  • Once a family profile is setup, you will then add individual youth and adult profiles (members) in your family profiles. You must have either a youth or family profile entered for your registration to be reviewed and accepted.
  • ONLY SET UP ONE (1) PROFILE PER FAMILY!
  • At any time if you lose your e-mail or password, contact your County Extension Office for assistance - DO NOT SET UP ANOTHER FAMILY or MEMBER PROFILE!
  • Please write down and place in a secure location your email address and password.
  • An active membership WILL NOT be granted until participation fees have been paid.
 FOR RETURNING MEMBERS
  • DO NOT establish another family or member profile on 4-H CONNECT if you already have one in the system.
  • REVIEW YOUR PROFILE VERY CAREFULLY. Incorrect information can create problems for you, your family, and the Extension Office when trying to communicating, acquiring school absences, etc.
  • IF YOUR ENROLLMENT IS NOT IN 4-H CONNECT YOU ARE NOT A TEXAS 4-H MEMBER!!!!
  • If your county requires paper enrollment forms, you need to make sure the office has entered information into the 4-H CONNECT system.
  • An active membership WILL NOT be granted until participation fees have been paid.
  • If you lose your email address or password contact your county Extension Office for assistance in resetting the account. Creation of a new profiles will result in charging of additional participation.
