4-H Week

The 2023 4-H Week theme is

“I 💚 4‑H”, which celebrates everything we love about 4-H.

The positive environment provided by 4-H volunteers ensures that kids from urban neighborhoods to suburban schoolyards to rural farming communities, are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles and are empowered with the skills to lead in life and career.

4-H believes that young people, in partnership with adults, can play a key role in creating a more promising and equitable future for youth, families and communities across the country. In 4-H, all members are given equal opportunity to succeed and are equipped with the skills they need to make a difference in the world.

We all LOVE 4-H and 4-H Week is a great time to promote all the opportunities 4-H has to offer! Terrebonne 4-H Week will be celebrated November 6-11, 2023.

Let’s show Terrebonne Parish why we LOVE 4-H! We hope that your schools allow your 4-H Club to hold a few celebrations throughout the week…...just in case, we have a few parish activities for you to take part in.
