Baton Rouge, LA - The Southern University Ag Center is seeking caring adults to volunteer as mentors for youth who are actively involved in the 4-H Living Interactive Family Education (LIFE) program.
The project seeks to rebuild broken family units who have been impacted by parental incarceration, which has a profound effect on the family. The 4-H National Mentoring project engages youth ages 5 to 17 in interactive family activities that include the incarcerated parent and the caregiver.
If you are the caring adult the program is looking for, contact the SU Ag Center 4-H Program Coordinator or Parent Educator to see how you can positively impact the lives of young people in the East Baton Rouge and St. Landry parish community. Interested individuals must be cleared through a background check prior to working with youth.
For information on how to get involved, contact Tiffany Wilkerson-Franklin, Program Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Delores Johnson, Parent Educator, email@example.com, at 225-771-2242. A family needs you!
