Monongalia County 4-H Today

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!

West Virginia University Extension Service 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 Monongalia County residents thanks to the tremendous support of our community members, local organizations, volunteers and local partners, including the Board of Education and County Commission.  

Monongalia County Highlights

  • Employees and WVU faculty members of the Monongalia County Extension Service are excited about the construction of the new Monongalia County Extension Service Complex and 4-H Center at Mylan Park. This complex will provide the opportunity for additional programming for our local community members and youth.
  • Monongalia County was one of six counties who was randomly selected to take part in a USDA Civil Rights’ review. The 4-H program was reviewed and, although official results are forthcoming, reviewers indicated that program reaches a variety of demographics and young people throughout the county and youths from a variety of backgrounds who are involved in 4-H events.
