4-H Youth Development Program – Asotin County

Welcome to Asotin County 4-H!

4-H is the youth development education program of Washington State University Extension, which is conducted jointly by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, your state land grant university (WSU) and Asotin County. Today 4-H is everywhere–in cities, suburbs, small towns, and rural communities. In the 21st century, 4-H serves a broad clientele with expanded program using a variety of ways to “learn by doing.”

Why join 4-H?

4-H provides a safe place for members to grow in knowledge and gain understanding of their projects. Along with this comes self-confidence. Members meet new people and are given opportunities for leadership experiences.

The cost for 4-H enrollment is $35 ($25 State fee plus $10 County fee).  Volunteers are not charged enrollment fees.  Cloverbuds do not pay the $10 County fee.  Scholarships are available for youth who need assistance with the enrollment fee.

Youth with special needs are encouraged to join. Please contact the Asotin County Extension office for details.

How do I get started?

Choose a project, pick a 4-H club and contact the 4-H leader to determine in they have openings for the projects you want your child to enroll in. (Visit the “Become a 4-H member” page). Or you can just contact the WSU Asotin County Extension office and we’ll help you through the process. You can reach us at (509) 243-2009 or visit us in the basement of the Asotin County Courthouse in Asotin, Washington.
