Leader Training

Thanks for Your Support

We have a wonderful 4-H program in Berkeley County because of our awesome volunteers! 4-H Clover

To ensure the continued safety and well-being of our 4-H members, volunteers are required to complete comprehensive training and undergo background checks. Sometimes the requirements get a bit complicated. Bear with us. Suzanne and Michael are constantly finding ways to make it easier for you to become an approved volunteer so you can continue doing what you do so very well. We are always a phone call or email away. Feel free to stop by the office for assistance!

Title IX Training

Adults who participate in WVU sponsored programs MUST complete Title IX training. There are no exceptions to this requirement.

Who must take Title IX training? All 4-H Members and Leaders who are 18 years old or older (or will be 18 by the first day of camp) AND have not had the training in the past 2 years.

If you have not completed this training or if you are unsure of your training status, please contact our office immediately 304-264-1936.
