The St. Charles Parish 4-H Shooting Sports Program was established to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes so that they may become self-directing, productive, and contributing members of society through a disciplined 4-H youth development program. The program is designed to do the following:

  • Promote the highest standards of safety, sportsmanship, and ethical behavior
  • Enhance self-confidence, self-concept, decision-making, character, personal development, responsibility, problem-solving, and sportsmanship
  • Develop leadership and citizenship within 4-H parameters for youth and adults
  • Expand 4-H membership and involve more volunteer adult leaders
  • Strengthen families through participation in life-long recreational activities
  • Create an appreciation and understanding of natural resources
  • Encourage participation in natural resources and related natural science programs by exposing participants to content through hunting and related activities
  • Develop an understanding of the principles of wildlife management
  • Complement and enhance the impact of existing safety, shooting, and hunter educational programs
  • Build awareness of related career opportunities
