School and Key Leader Guide

This packet is designed to help you learn more about 4-H in Louisiana, and to help your club’s 4-H members have a positive experience in their 4-H Club. Please realize that there are many opportunities for you to further your development as a volunteer through online, parish, regional, state and national trainings. It is our hope that this document will assist 4-H staff and school/key leaders in their efforts to expand the number of youth involved in 4-H Clubs in Louisiana’s communities, as well as expand our efforts to improve the effectiveness of existing clubs.

·Establish a common understanding of the definitions, measures and outcomes of 4-H school clubs.

·Develop recommendations for action steps that can be taken to strengthen, support and expand 4-H school club programming in parishes.

·Provide guidelines and common expectations for volunteers and staff.
