Berkeley County Community Education Outreach Service
Connect with Berkeley County CEOS
Berkeley County CEOS members impact our community and are part of a larger statewide fabric of CEOS member clubs improving West Virginia.
A statewide club supporting West Virginia since 1914
Over the past decade, West Virginia CEOS members performed more than 5.6 million
hours of service for communities in need.
WVCEOS is a voluntary, nonprofit organization functioning in cooperation with the West Virginia University Extension Service. It is one of the largest educational organizations in the nation.
CEOS program areas of emphasis include preserving the environment, building family strengths, and increasing awareness of our global interdependence.
Through dedicated service, continued education and leadership development, CEOS members strengthen individuals, families and communities across West Virginia.
In West Virginia, the first club (then a Farm Women’s Club) was established on December 14, 1914. Today, more than 3,500 members participate in this outstanding program, available in all 55 counties.
Members of WVCEOS are people like you!
Together, members conduct and participate in motivating educational activities that help members continue education, gain leadership skills and inspire community involvement.
