Youth can get involved in Florida 4-H many different ways:

Membership age is determined by the youth’s age as of September 1 of the current program year (September 1 – August 31).  The minimum age of a 4-H’er is 5 years old and the maximum age is 18 years old, or completion of high school, whichever comes first. Youth whose membership age is beyond 18 who qualified for a National Contest (as a culminating event for their project learning) shall be eligible to participate in the event as long as they qualify as per National Contest policies. Youth classified as an “exceptional student” - determined eligible for a special program by the State Board of Education [Florida Statute 1003.01(3)(a)] shall be eligible to participate until the age of 21 years old or completion of high school, whichever comes first.
