4-H Youth Development
Annual Enrollment Fees
The 4-H Program Year starts on July 1st and ends on June 30th.
Annual enrollment fees are $65 per youth member and $30 per adult volunteer.
Families that are experiencing financial difficulty can submit a Fee Waiver Request for their children. We want every youth who is interested in 4-H to be able to participate and grow in the program, regardless of financial considerations.
Based on recent CDC guidance and on the current level of community transmission in Kern County, masks are no longer required, but are still recommended, for all indoor 4-H activities, regardless of age or vaccination status. Masks are not required for outdoor activities.
