Tips for Navigating 4-H Online:

  • Never use your browser’s back button to go back to a previous screen. This can cause some information to be lost. Use the built-in “Previous” and “Continue” buttons to move between screens, or the “Home,” “Family,” and “Member List” buttons in the upper-right of each screen to return to a root menu.
  • If you are having trouble advancing from one screen to the next after clicking “Continue,” you may have to upgrade your browser or switch to a different one. Versions of Internet Explorer cannot be used with 4-H Online. You can download Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome for free.
  • Only interact with 4-H Online in one tab of one browser window. If you are logged in to your 4-H Online account and attempt to log in to your account in a second window or tab, your original session will time out and you will lose any unsaved work.
