Adult Enrollment

How to become a 4-H Adult Volunteer: 

To become a certified adult volunteer for 4-H, there are a few steps which must be taken before you can enroll.  To be an adult volunteer, you must go through a short orientation, get fingerprinted (and pass the background check), and then complete the enrollment process.  More details are provided below.

 Steps to Becoming a 4-H Volunteer: 

1.) Attend one of the three volunteer orientations.  Butte County 4-H holds three orientations per year (one in June, September, and October). 

2.) Get fingerprinted and pass the background check.  Butte County 4-H typically brings in a Livescan agent to do fingerprinting at each orientation to make it more convenient. The fingerprinting typically costs $45, due at the time of fingerprinting.  However, 4-H will reimburse you for the money if you pass the background check!  Please bring money (cash or check only) and a valid photo ID (like a drivers license) to the orientation.  

3.) Enroll in the 4-H Youth Development Program.  There are two ways to in enroll in the 4-H YDP.  The steps are outlined below.  

There are two routes to enroll as an adult in the 4-H Youth Development Program.  Both require some hard copy forms to be turned in the Community Club Leader (CCL) of which ever club you choose.  To find a club near your, check out our 4-H Clubs page.  

Two routes to enrollment:

1.) Online enrollment   OR    2.) Hard copy enrollment

Here's the main difference between the two ways to enroll:

While one option is mainly online, there are still a few forms which must be turned into the Community Club Leader.  The hard copy enrollment means that all forms and paperwork must be filled out via hard copy and turned into the Community Club Leader.  

Check out what is required for each enrollment method below and pick which is right for you!

How much does it cost to join 4-H? 

4-H has an annual fee of $25 per adult.  The fee is due when you turn in your forms and enrollment into your CCL.  

How to Enroll Online (recommended): 

1.) Go to 4HOnline and login into your profile.  If you're new to 4-H, you'll need to click the "I need to set up a profile" bubble.  

NOTE: For returning families, if you forgot your profile password, PLEASE do not create a new profile.  Call the 4-H Office at 530-538-7201, and we will help you log in!

2.) Fill out all of the necessary online components.  4HOnline will have asterisks(*) next to the required information.  

3.) Once you've filled out the online enrollment, there are still hard copy forms which must be printed, filled out, and given to your Community Club Leader (CCL).
