WVU Doddridge County Extension programs and activities are offered at minimal or no cost for county residents, as we are supported in part by the Doddridge County Special Levy and Doddridge County Board of Education.
The West Virginia University Extension, in partnership with the West Virginia Community Educational Outreach Service (WVCEOS), is offering a series of virtual classes in October as a part of the “Helpful Hands” Leadership and Enrichment Conference. The courses, which will be offered virtually, are free and open to the public.
Part of the National Cooperative Extension System
All universities engage in research and teaching, but the nation’s more than 100 land-grant colleges and universities including WVU, have another critical mission: Extension. Extension means reaching out, and along with teaching and research land-grant institutions extend their resources, solving public needs with college or university resources through local programs. With more than 3,000 county offices in the USA, the National Cooperative Extension System is the local front door for many citizens to their state land-grant institutions.
Putting Knowledge to Work!
The West Virginia University Extension works to provide solutions in your community through key programs and resources, including agriculture and natural resources; 4-H and youth development; food and nutrition; health and wellness; financial planning; and home gardening. These research-based programs and services are available to all Doddridge residents thanks to the tremendous support of our community members, local organizations, volunteers and local partners, including the Board of Education and County Commission.
