4-H Power of Youth

About 4-H

4-H in East Baton Rouge Parish is a part of a local, state, national and international youth program. It is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States.

4-H agents develop and conduct educational programs and activities that provide youth the opportunity to develop such life skills as self-esteem, community and citizen responsibility, decision making, organization and social interaction. They are assisted by staff members of the Louisiana State University AgCenter and both parish and state Cooperative Extension Service offices. School leaders, volunteer parents and other lay leaders who share their time and talents in service to this youth organization in East Baton Rouge Parish are a fundamental element in the success of 4H in East Baton Rouge Parish.

The 4-H Slogan, "Learn By Doing," is accomplished through record keeping, work in project books, method demonstrations, contests, workshops, junior leader club activities, camps and monthly scheduled club meetings.
