Va Coop. Extension

VA Cooperative ExtensionVirginia Cooperative Extension, Family and Consumer Sciences, improves the well-being of Virginia families through programs that put research-based knowledge to work in people’s lives. Family and Consumer Sciences educators help Virginians learn to make good choices for themselves and their families. This, in turn, strengthens their communities and the commonwealth.  In the field of early childhood, extension agents teach Virginians how to improve their quality of life by giving them the skills to identify quality childcare and make good parenting decisions that lead to healthy development.
