The reenrollment period for Kewaunee County 4-H ended on November 3rd and the group saw another strong year with a majority of members opting to remain part of the organization. Youth Development Educator Jill Jorgensen says that flexibility is the key.
4-H has 6.5 million members nationwide divided into over 90,000 clubs. Compared to other youth organizations, 4-H enrollment has held up remarkably well. The reenrollment rate is usually around 60% and studies have shown that kids who enroll at a younger age are more likely to stick with the program.
