West Virginia University Extension’s Community Education Outreach Service volunteers are embedded in the fabric of our West Virginia communities. In addition to providing thousands of service hours to West Virginia nonprofits and other organizations, the group helps to coordinate educational opportunities that improve lives throughout the state. The group is extending its service by offering free educational courses to the public as part of its “Milling Around West Virginia” spring conference. The conference, which will be held virtually, runs April 11-13. 

Participants can choose from classes on a host of topics, including book clubs, floral design and coal towns, to lands of history and mystery, charcuterie boards and crafts. The courses will be offered each day of the conference at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. All sessions will be held virtually via Zoom. A list of sessions is available on the CEOS website or by visiting for those interested in participating.

“This conference is a wonderful way to introduce people to our CEOS group, as well as many of our Extension experts,” Kerri Carte, Family and Community Development agent in Kanawha County, said. “The sessions provide fun, practical information that individuals can use in their own lives, and we encourage people to take advantage of these free classes and to learn more about our CEOS outreach efforts.”
