WVU Extension agents can teach on a variety of topics, including:
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!
The West Virginia University Extension 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 Raleigh 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.
Raleigh County Highlights
- When the need to pivot in reaching youth and families became virtual or by providing opportunities for them to engage in programs at their own pace due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have still been engaging youth in virtual camping, clubs, and Energy Express.
- We were able to continue the summer feeding program during the time when schools were not providing meals and paint active pathways at schools to provide social distanced activities for students.
