Louisiana 4-H Cloverbuds banner

Greetings from Louisiana 4-H:

Thank you for your interest in the Louisiana 4-H Cloverbud Program. The overall purpose of the program is to provide a safe space for children to share, grow, and thrive as they

learn about themselves and others.

After registering, you will receive an email with a link for series of lessons intended to promote discussion and awareness about accepting oneself while becoming aware and acceptant of likenesses and differences in others. The lessons do not need to be taught in any particular order.

Lessons include:

  • Celebrating Individuality
  • Manners Matter
  • Dealing with Disappointment
  • Disability Awareness
  • Making Decisions
  • Diversity Awareness

An activity guide (newsletter) has been provided for each lesson. The purpose of the activity guide is to continue awareness and discussions within the home of each child. Please instruct children on what is inside of each activity guide and ask them to consider sharing new conversation at the dinner table or during family time.

For your reference on this webpage, you will find the National Cloverbud Policy outlining the intent of the program. As you will read, Cloverbuds is non-competitive and not a mini-version of the traditional 4-H program. Cloverbuds can be conducted as a Club in a Class or an After-School Program.

I look forward to further communication from you throughout this next school year. If you have any concerns, questions, or would like to discuss any issues as they relate to the Cloverbud program, please reach out to me.

Regards, Esther Coco Boe,
Regional Coordinator
