Community Educational Outreach Service (CEOS)

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.

There are seven CEOS Clubs in Lewis County. Each club meets monthly to provide educational opportunities, to discuss and plan community service projects, and to enjoy fellowship together.

The Lewis County CEOS County Council provides a forum for members from all clubs to meet, to plan countywide activities such as Show-How Day and the annual Achievement Banquet, and to discuss special programs and service needs. Educational lessons are presented in conjunction with the County Council meetings.
