Boone County 4-H
By far, 4-H is the most known and visible Extension development program, best known
4-H Clubs and summer
4-H Camps, but Extension also offers literacy and adult volunteer leadership
programming related to 4-H and youth development.
Youth development in Boone County is open to everyone, from youngsters to young adults. Boone County features local 4-H clubs across the county.
4-H is one of the largest youth development programs in America with more than 6.5 million young people and 540,000 volunteers. In West Virginia, one out of every five youth under the age of 21 participates in 4-H youth development programming.

Fall 2022 Regional 4-H Volunteer Training Opportunities
There are 4-H volunteer training opportunities scheduled around the state from late August through early October. A meal and 4-H club ideas (with supplies!) will be provided to each participant.
Volunteers are strongly encouraged to attend these trainings to gain new skills and learn how to restart/start 4-H clubs. This session will provide grab 'n' go training resources and curriculum you can use in working within the 4-H youth program. The training will also focus on building relationships between 4-H volunteers and Extension educators. We are excited to come back together to learn, socialize and recognize our excellent volunteers that support our youth.
