Person County Extension

Our Mission

North Carolina Cooperative Extension partners with communities to deliver education and technology that enrich the lives, land and economy of North Carolinians.

What is Cooperative Extension in North Carolina?

The North Carolina Cooperative Extension is a partnership involving the United States Department of Agriculture, state and county governments, and our two land grant universities: North Carolina State University in Raleigh and North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro. Its mission is to help people improve their lives through an educational process that uses scientific knowledge based on issues and needs.

The Cooperative Extension helps people gain new knowledge and put it to work in agriculture and natural resources, home economics, 4-H and youth development, and community and rural development. These programs help people identify problems and find solutions to improve their homes, families, farms, businesses and communities.

The Cooperative Extension provides useful, research-based information and non-formal learning opportunities. This information is available to all North Carolinians through extension agents and staff in each county and with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. County personnel are supported by a staff of subject matter specialists at both universities.
