Louisiana teens lead the way

Leadership Program 5JPG

By teaching teens to become leaders, 4- H strives to develop life skills such as decision making, relationships, learning, management, understanding self, group processes and communication.

Through the Northeast 4-H Regional Leadership Board, 41 youths from 12 northeastern parishes built the skills and confidence needed to become leaders and served their communities in projects that helped children facing life-threatening illnesses and those living in foster care.

Teens in the Northwest Region planned a Leadership Summit at a local university that introduced 4-H’ers to an array of possible careers and college choices, and 4-H’ers from across the state gather each year for the We Lead Conference, where they grow as ambassadors for the state 4-H program.
