Utah County 4-H Clubs

There's a place for everyone in 4-H! 

4-H is run through volunteer-led clubs. These clubs are a safe place to explore new interests, learn through trial and error, and make new friends; all while having the support of a caring mentor. Each 4-H club meets at least 6 times a year. Different projects can be selected based on the interests of the youth involved. These projects are then completed within the club, and can be entered into the Utah County Fair held in August. 

Club Charting Requirements 

  • Clubs may charter throughout the 4-H Year
    • Prior to club meetings, all club members and leaders must be registered for 4-H for the current year.
    • Clubs will not be visible in ZSuite for enrollment until club charter paperwork is submitted to and approved by the 4-H Office. 
    • Club charter forms are available here.
    • Please email your club charter form to Melanie at melanie.ogan@usu.edu or Heather at heather.thomson@usu.edu or drop it off at the 4-H Office.

    • Families may combine to create a chartered club.

If you are planning to be a 4-H Family Club, please select either North UT CO Club or South UT CO Club based on your location North or South of University Parkway.
