CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia University Extension Service and West Virginia State University Extension Service are getting a grant to support the 4-H National Mentoring Program.

U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito says the extension services are receiving the $246,000 grant from the National 4-H Council. The council received the grant money from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Officials say the West Virginia grant will be used to fund 4-H mentoring programs across the state to keep students safe and prevent youth delinquency.

The 4-H National Mentoring Program has reached more than 31,000 youth, helping them build healthier relationships, improve their self-esteem and continue their education.
