4-H Youth Development
Learn by Doing!
4-H is the largest youth organization in the United States. 4-H offers opportunities to explore your interest areas, meet new people, develop leadership skills & have fun!
West Virginia 4-H Programs welcome youths of any age between 9 and 21. As long as your child lives in West Virginia, and is within the age limits, he or she can be in 4-H.
Cloverbuds, a program for 7 and 8 year-old children, is also available. There are no financial or academic requirements to be met—all they need is a love for fun and an inquiring mind!
By far, 4-H is the most known and visible Extension development program, best known for its 4-H Clubs and summer 4-H Camps, but Extension also offers literacy and adult volunteer leadership programming related to 4-H and youth development through Energy Express.
Below is a list of the 4-H clubs available in Tyler County. If you are interested in joining a 4-H club contact a 4-H Leader in your neighborhood for additional information or to register, or contact the WVU Tyler County Extension Office at 304-758-2101 if you are interested in becoming a leader & starting your own club!
