Iberia Parish 4-H

Iberia Parish 4-H The 4-H Pledge: "I pledge my Head to clearer thinking, my Heart to greater loyalty, my Hands to larger service and my Health to better living, for my club, my community, my country, and my world."
(3)

The 4-H motto is "To make the best better", while its slogan is "Learn by doing." 4-H in the United States is a youth organization administered by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), with the mission of "engaging youth to reach their fullest potential while advancing the field of youth development." The organization has over 6.5 million members in the United States, from ages five to nineteen, in approximately 90,000 clubs. The official 4-H emblem is a green four-leaf clover with a white H on each leaf standing for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. White and green are the 4-H colors. The white symbolizes purity and the green represents growth.

Mission: 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.

Raising broiler chickens is one of the most interesting and fun-filled activities a 4-H’er can experience.

The deadline to order broilers is Monday, November 16th and the birds are scheduled to be delivered in early January! Call the 4-H office at 369-4440 for more information.

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT!!!
Chloe Crochet – Homeschool on the Teche
6-year member, Honor Cord Recipient

Major activities/accomplishments: completing 14 dual enrollment classes; being accepted into college; receiving scholarships for my academic achievements

What have you enjoyed most about 4-H during your time as a member? What I have enjoyed most in 4-H is the community that it creates. This club brings together so many people from different social circles and makes them a family.

Plans after high school – I plan to pursue a degree in psychology with a minor in social work. I hope to work as a Child Life Specialist.

Congratulations Chloe!
