New 4-H Year, Club Information, and Age Policy

The new 4-H year begins on October 1. For those who have participated before with Monongalia County 4-H, your local agent will send instructions on how to re-enroll your child in ZSuite on October 1. Please do not try and re-enroll until after that date because you will just have to re-do it. 

Several of our community clubs are going to begin meeting and some are delaying their meeting starts. It's recommended you reaching out to your club leaders to see when their first meeting will be held. Monongalia County will hold a countywide Cloverbud (age 5-8) monthly meeting the third Monday of each month at 6 p.m., and a countywide teen leader club (ages 12 and up) that meets monthly on the third Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Extension Office at Mylan Park. Both clubs will begin in October. 

Please contact the Monongalia County Extension Office if you have any questions. We are looking for teen and adult volunteers to assist with our Cloverbud club: please let us know if you are interested.
