The 4-H year in West Virginia runs from October 1 to September 30. Youth and volunteers can register anytime during the 4-H year. Many 4-H participants register for 4-H in the fall. There are incentives for participants who sign up during the month of October.

There may be registration deadlines to participate in specific activities, projects, and programs. Check with your local Extension Office for details.

Program information may be made available in languages other than English. If you need free language assistance, please contact Kim Suder at or call 304-293-8613.

Registering for 4-H

The 4-H registration process has moved online into ZSuite. A household completes all registration forms and participant waivers in this system. Participant waivers include a Health form, Media release, Transportation waiver, ADA accommodation needs, and the Code of Conduct. Following the waivers, members will be asked to select 4-H clubs and 4-H projects they wish to participate in during the upcoming 4-H year. Volunteers will also need to enroll in ZSuite.

  • New 4-H households will have to create a ZSuite account, add household members, and complete enrollment forms and waivers for each person.
  • Returning 4-H households will need to log into their ZSuite household account to complete the enrollment forms for the new 4-H year. Most information has been carried over from the previous year, allowing current members to quickly review and update their information for the new year.
