Cross Club Projects:  

4-H members may participate in projects offered by a neighboring club, county or state if the headquarter club does not offer the 4-H project a member is interested in.  The community 4-H club and project adult volunteers in both clubs and 4-H Youth Development Program (YDP) staff in all counties and states involved must approve the participation.

It is the responsibility of the 4-H member and their parent/guardian to acquire the signatures of the home and host community 4-H club and project adult volunteers. The completed request/agreement form must be returned to the home county 4-H office for verification and approval.  The county 4-H YDP will contact the host county 4-H staff for approval.
