Youth participate in Celebrate Girls workshop
“Learning their self-worth and gaining knowledge, the most refreshing thing for me is seeing the girls raise their hands to ask questions showing that they want to learn,” expressed Cathy Judd.
Judd with the LSU AgCenter held a workshop for girls between sixth and eighth grade, who are currently members of 4-H. 4-H is a youth development organization, which helps youth gain academic, leadership and life skills. Having held the Celebrate Girls workshop for three years, Judd plans to continue it. With 22 young girls attending, and help from adult and teen volunteers, the workshop remains successful.
