Extension in Your Community
Young Adults Conference
The Young Adults Conference (YAC) provides an environment for young adults to remain in contact with 4-H after youth membership. Also, it encourages participation in Extension programs after youth membership by promoting continued involvement through leadership roles available for adults in the programs. The conference also provides the opportunity for personal growth through programs offered and fellowship among peers. You must be 18 or older by start of the event on January 29-31, 2016 at WVU Jackson’s Mill. The standard registration fee is $75 for the Full Conference Package – Dorm Option but there are several other options available. Register online.

Part of the National Cooperative Extension System
WVU’s Webster County Extension Office is part of the national land-grant system. Each office has the same mission as its foundation: to help people put knowledge to work. On our web site, we also link you to eXtension, a link to a national clearinghouse on Extension Service information, gathered by Extension Agents across the United States. 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.
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.
