For thousands of young people throughout West Virginia, 4-H provides a creative outlet to learn new skills, make lifelong connections and encourage service to their communities. To celebrate this important youth development program, West Virginia University Extension will join 4-H’ers across the nation in celebrating National 4-H Week (Oct. 3-9).
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.
West Virginia’s young people bring innovative ideas, powerful insights and a true entrepreneurial spirit to the state. As West Virginia communities work to grow the economy and build community, youth voices will drive that success, particularly in rural and low-income communities.
