Swain County 4-H 2021 Enrollment How To
Are you enrolled in Swain County 4-H for 2021? The first step to becoming an active 4-H member, volunteer, or participant during this year’s 4-H program is to re-enroll in 4-H Online! North Carolina 4-H uses an online system, called 4-H Online 2.0, to manage 4-H memberships, clubs, projects, activities, and communications. All members who participate in North Carolina 4-H must have a 4-H Online 2.0 profile.
4-H Online 2.0 accounts are family-based, which means every family creates a “master” profile with its own login ID and password. A member file is then created within the family profile for each individual involved in North Carolina 4-H. If you were previously enrolled and/or if someone in your family was involved in North Carolina 4-H from 2018 to 2020, you probably have an existing family profile in 4-H Online 2.0. Previous members should use their existing login and password to access their family profile in the new 4-H Online 2.0 platform. Members who are re-enrolling should NOT create a new account.
NEW Members (youth and volunteers), enrolling for the first time, should click the “Don’t have an account?” link and begin the registration process. During both the re-enrollment and enrollment process members will be asked a series of important questions. These questions establish the type of member profile the system will generate. Please review the types of 4-H members before you re-enroll or enroll for the first time.
Types of Members: Youth Members are automatically entered as either a Cloverbud or a Member based on their date of birth. Cloverbuds are youth ages 5 -7 years of age (as of January 1, 2021). Junior/Senior Members are youth ages 8 -18 years of age (as of January 1, 2021), and not have passed their 18th birthday on Jan. 1st of the year they are participating). Volunteers are adults who have been or will be screened and certified as 4-H Volunteers.
Note: Any adult or guardian that desires to work directly with members in any capacity, such as helping with club activities, should enroll as a Volunteer.
