4-H and Youth


All 4-H groups need to be properly chartered to be recognized as official and in good standing to operate 4-H programs and activities in the state of West Virginia. Documents linked here serve as resources for this process.

A map of West Virginia showing county groups to which state 4-H specialists are assigned as liasions is also included. These members of the state 4-H staff stand ready to assist with club chartering and 4-H group authorization processes. Help may also be obtained by contacting Joyce Clark, Office Administrator JDClark@mail.wvu.edu or Brent Clark, W.Va. State 4-H Program Leader at Brent.Clark@mail.wvu.edu.
