The United States Department of Agriculture and Virginia 4-H require all 4-H clubs and groups to have a charter signed by the Secretary of Agriculture and the Director of the National 4-H Headquarters and issued by the State 4-H Office. This requirement includes 4-H Cloverbud groups, community clubs, project clubs, after-school clubs, and military clubs. For more information about the requirements for and privileges of a Virginia 4-H Charter, see VCE Publication 388-070.

To apply for a 4-H Charter, the organizational leader of a 4-H club or Cloverbud group should submit one copy of this application to the local Extension office if the club or group is based at a county or city level. District or state level clubs/groups should send applications to the State 4-H Youth Development Office (107 Hutcheson Hall, Virginia Tech (0419), Blacksburg, VA 24061).
