Broward County 4-H recognizes that the club model is not ideal for every youth, and that families may face timing, location, or transportation difficulties. In response to this, 4-H is providing an option of independent 4-H membership for youth who are not able to participate in existing 4-H community or school clubs. Independent 4-H membership allows youth to be involved with 4-H outside of a club setting. Independent members are full-fledged members of 4-H who engage in self-directed, planned learning with the help of a parent or mentor. These members pay annual membership dues, register in 4-H Online, and are eligible to participate in County, District, State, and National 4-H events and activities. To ensure that youth choosing Independent 4-H Membership have a 4-H experience of the highest quality, members are asked to submit the Independent 4-H Members Agreement each year upon enrollment/re-enrollment.
