4-H in Plaquemines Parish.....
is a part of a local, state, national and international youth program. It is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States. Our parish has approximately 700 members and 21 organizational club leaders and over 100 4-H volunteers.
4-H agents develop and execute educational programs and activities that provide youth the opportunity to develop life skills such as self esteem, community and citizen responsibility, decision making, organization and social interaction. They are assisted in this goal by staff members of the Louisiana State University Agricultural Center, and both parish and state LSU AgCenter Extension Offices. School leaders, volunteer parents and other lay leaders, who share their time and talents in service to this youth organization in Plaquemines Parish, are a very fundamental element in the success of 4-H in Plaquemines Parish.
The 4-H Slogan, "Learn By Doing", is accomplished through project club work, community service learning projects, contests, workshops, leadership development, club activities, enrichment programs, educational programs, camps and monthly meetings.4-H Motto, Colors, Slogan.....
