4-H Online Enrollment

As we embark on a new 4-H programming year, we are excited to introduce you to a new on-line enrollment system. All 4-H families will enroll in clubs and projects through 4HOnline at ne.4honline.com .  You will need to create a new family account and profiles for each 4-H member at ne.4honline.com to participate in the 2017 program year. 4HOnline is a web-based enrollment system that will allow families to enroll in 4-H on your personal computer, mobile device or at local enrollment events hosted in your county.  You'll be able to complete all of the information necessary to join

Introducing: Youth for the Quality Care of Animals 

We are excited to announce that the new QA Curriculum called Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) is now active.

Anyone who has not registered for the LQA online course for 2017 should now navigate to the NEW online YQCA course at yqca.learngrow.io. You will use your FAMILY 4HOnline login and password information to access the courses for the ACTIVE youth in your family.  Only ACTIVE members will show in the drop down menu for access to the course.   

All registration questions with YQCA should be directed to help@yqca.org. There will not be local support for the YQCA program. All 4-H’ers need to use the 4-H tab and not the FFA tab even if they are members of both organizations. There is a button for families that have forgotten their password.

4-H’ers that have started their QA training in the LQA site will be able to complete their modules and print off their certificate of completion and take it to their Extension Office. The YQCA site is user friendly and should make it easy for 4-H families to complete their QA training for this year.  

Every 4-H’er who exhibits a market animal must complete Quality Assurance by June 15 in order to show your market animal at the county fair. This includes exhibitors of beef, dairy, dairy goat, meat goat, poultry, rabbit, sheep and swine.

Project Resource Central

This project reference guide lists project resources available for Nebraska 4-H members, families, and volunteers. It includes materials developed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension  4-H Youth Development, National 4-H, and other universities, as well as online resources.

Most items listed are available as printed manuals, but some are avaliable in electronic form (CD, DVD, or online). All online resource links can be found on the corresponding Project Resource webpage.
National 4-H items are noted by NATL4H; these manuals must be ordered through the National 4-H mall.

The names of some projects listed in this manual reflect Nebraska State Fair or National 4-H names and may not match project names at the county level. If you have any questions about a project, contact your county extension staff for assistance.
