Assumption 4-H'ers chosen to serve on state boards

Assumption Parish 4H Club

The Louisiana 4-H program is committed to developing leadership skills in youth. One of the methods in which leadership skills are developed and enhanced is through the State 4-H Leadership Board experience. More than eighty youth serve on one of the statewide youth leadership teams including the Citizenship Board, Executive Board, Fashion Board, Food and Fitness Board, and the SET Board. These leadership boards give youth the opportunity to work together on a common focus while developing leadership for statewide programs. The youth serving on these boards provide valuable leadership and guidance to the positive direction of the 4-H program. Assumption 4-H is very proud to have three youth elected to these boards.
