Louisiana 4-H Volunteer Program

Youth and adult volunteers play a critical role to support expanding the outreach capabilities in all LCES programming areas, including 4-H, Agriculture and Natural Resources and Family and Consumer Sciences.

The LSU AgCenter values the contribution volunteers make and recognizes the impact they have on 4-H members and other service recipients. The Louisiana 4-H Youth Development program provides adults and youth alike with a multitude of ways to volunteer and become active with young people in their local community.

A volunteer is defined as an individual who contributes time of their own free will. All 4-H volunteers need to be officially enrolled by their local Extension office through their 4-H Youth Development professional. We need caring volunteers to show leadership by becoming involved with youth at the local level. Therefore, please consider visiting with your local 4-H Youth Development professional to find out how to get involved.
