Volunteers are the heart of the Ascension Parish 4-H program. There are many roles and positions the provide important functions to help make 4-H programming successful. All volunteers must be registered and trained by the parish office. Individuals can volunteer to serve project leaders, provide transportation to 4-H events, assist with the parish or school 4-H programs, and more. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please call the 4-H office. As a volunteer, you are supported by the insurance carried by LSU AgCenter for AgCenter events. You can enroll as a volunteer through the 4-H online system Here.

Some volunteer levels require background screens, risk management training, driver authorization, and/or orientations and must all be completed and approved prior to serving in that particular volunteer role.
