SU Ag Center 4-H Program to Receive $75,200 Award from the National 4-H Council

Baton Rouge, LA - The Southern University Ag Center's 4-H Living Interactive Family Education (LIFE) National Mentoring Program has received an award in the amount of $75,200 from the National 4-H Council, funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).

"This amount is based on your requested award amount and the projected youth reach in your submitted proposal, which Council has reviewed and recommended for funding," stated Sally Miske, National 4-H Financial Management Director, in a letter informing the Ag Center of the council's intention to fund the program.

The SU Ag Center's 4-H LIFE program seeks to rebuild broken family units who have been impacted by parental incarceration.  The 4-H National Mentoring project engages youth ages 5 to 17 in interactive family activities that include the incarcerated parent and the caregiver.  The program is continuing its implementation in both East Baton Rouge and St. Landry Parishes. 

For additional information about the Southern University Ag Center's 4-H LIFE program contact Tiffany Wilkerson-Franklin, Program Coordinator, or  Milissia John-Baptiste, Program Assistant,, at 225-771-2242.
