The Ascension Parish 4-H Shooting Sports Program recently trained and certified 44 volunteers to teach several disciplines in the program, a news release from 4-H said.

Volunteers from surrounding areas attended the training.

The mission of the Louisiana 4-H Shooting Sports Program is to help youths in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills and forming attitudes that will help them become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society, the release said.

Archery, shotgun, rifle, pistol and coordinator roles are just a few of the classes that were conducted during the recent session.

Ascension Parish added seven adult volunteers to its club, the release said.
