Description:

Calcasieu 4-H - The Fun Starts Here!
4-H in Calcasieu Parish is fun and interesting. Look at the different pages on our Web site to see what's happening in Calcasieu 4-H. There is something for everyone.

There are about 1,750 4-H members aged 9-19 years old and about 50 organized 4-H clubs throughout the parish. About 250 volunteer leaders in the parish help with the program.

Four-H provides opportunities for youth (9-19 years) to develop life skills through hands on learning.

Through non-formal, research-based, experiential education activities, 4-H participants gain knowledge and life skills enabling them to become positive, productive, capable and compassionate members of their communities. 4-H has three primary program initiatives: citizenship; healthy living; and science, engineering and technology. Youth learn leadership, citizenship and life skills through a variety of projects with topics such as outdoor skills, aerospace, animal science, nutrition, forestry and community service. "Learn by doing" is the 4-H club slogan. 4-H members don't just read about things; they do them. They make things. They take part in club meetings. They learn interesting new things. They learn to follow, and they learn to lead. They help their neighbors and their neighborhoods through club activities.

The Louisiana 4-H Youth Development program continues to expand to meet the needs of youth, with participation exceeding 175,000.
