4-H Enrollment

Registration is open for the 2022-23 4-H year!

This year, Illinois 4-H is switching our enrollment and registration system to ZSuite. This new system offers a more user-friendly experience. It also has features that will help you stay connected to the 4-H program, and find new exciting experiences and opportunities for your 4-H members.

All 4-H families and volunteers will need to create a new household account in this system and add profiles for their participating family members (youth and adult volunteers).

Please see these step-by-step directions or check out this how-to video on the Illinois 4-H website.
