Find endless opportunities at 4-H
It is an educational program of the LSU AgCenter that teaches youth to use their heads, hearts, hands and health to become productive citizens. 4-H is also the nation’s largest youth organization.
Over 250,000 youth are impacted by the program in Louisiana alone each year. Although Louisiana 4-H has continued with its traditional programs, such as livestock and cookery contests, it has expanded to impact more youth by focusing on three primary program initiatives: citizenship, healthy living, and science, engineering and technology.
Students in 4th through 12th grades may join 4-H through a school or community club. Club members meet on a monthly basis to participate in educational activities and plan community service events.
Here are just a few programs offered through St. Charles Parish 4-H:
Youth Wetlands Program – This is designed to increase students’ awareness of Louisiana wetlands. Teachers can sign up to receive free curriculum and materials that targets wetland and environmental education for youth.
Teen Leadership – Middle and high school students plan, implement and evaluate peer-led events and activities.
Camping Experiences – During the summer months, 4th – 6th graders are invited to attend 4-H Summer Camp, 7th and 8th graders attend LOST Camp, and 13- through 19-year-olds attend 4-H University. 4-H also offers camping opportunities throughout the school year.
Project Clubs – St. Charles Parish offers community project clubs open to all 4-H members. The parish currently has the 4-H Fashion Club and Performing Arts Club and plans to continue establishing community clubs, such as shooting sports, gardening, and health, in which volunteers are needed.
Volunteer Opportunities – There are over 30 project-related areas in 4-H, in which volunteers are encouraged to share their expertise and passion for helping youth.
