4-H Youth Development

The 4-H emblem is recognized all over the country as a symbol of pride. Its mission of cultivating America's youth to lead us in a Revolution of Responsibility has been embraced by the efforts of WVSU Extension Service and our 4-H Youth Development program. 

What does it mean to be part of 4-H? 4-H encompasses school gardening, robotics teams, poetry slams, summer camps, and more! It is weekend space sleepovers and after school coding, raising sheep and riding horses, acting, writing and crafting. 4-H is youth-led, youth-focused programming centered on creating citizens who are well-equipped to face the world, pursue their passions, and support one another as they grow. 

4-H programming is about serving youth needs and that means being responsive and adaptable. While club members still show livestock at the state fair, they also travel to Facebook Headquarters to participate in Hackathons.
