Virginia Cooperative Extension-Shenandoah
Virginia Cooperative Extension helps lead the engagement mission of Virginia Tech and Virginia State University, the commonwealth's land-grant universities. Building local relationships and collaborative partnerships, we help people put scientific knowledge to work through learning experiences that improve economic, environmental, and social well-being.
Virginia Cooperative Extension views the family unit as the cornerstone of a healthy community. We strive to improve the well being of Virginia families through programs that help participants put research-based knowledge to work in their lives.
Our holistic approach to strengthening Virginia families, including those with limited resources, assists youth and adult participants in developing wellness life skills related to health, diet, and nutrition, exercise, family financial management, and parenting. By participating in our educational programs, participants become healthier, more productive citizens who further contribute to Virginia's social and economic stability.
