Since March 2020, when the world shut down, 4-H enrollment has faced a decline. Many programs were conducted virtually during the pandemic, but enrollment numbers declined.
State Enrollment Data: (Approximately)
2018-2019 over 60,500 members
2019-2020 down to 40,500
2020-2021 down further to 40, 200
2021-2022 Currently back up to almost 60,000.
The new 4-H enrollment period just began September 1, 2022, and we are well on track to make this the highest enrollment in the past three years! These numbers include youth in organized clubs, special interest programs, school enrichment, after-school programs, and individual members.
