The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office is here to provide fun, educational programs and services to the people of Texas and Webb County. The County Extension Agents work collaboratively to offer a multitude of resources for everyone by using only research-based knowledge that focus on the needs of our community!
How does Extension work?
Extension focuses on educating Texans in a variety of areas including agriculture, environmental awareness, youth and adult life skills, leadership, nutrition, and community development. Visit our agent’s pages to learn more about their programs, events, and activities.
Developing educational programs based on community needs is the foundation of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension’s success. The Leadership Advisory Boards process provides an avenue to hear from all types of clientele and people within a county. Providing solutions to county problems and issues will allow AgriLife Extension to remain viable to constituents. What could be more important to AgriLife Extension than listening to its “customers” – the people of Texas? Our ability to meet educational needs depends on knowing what local residents see as their issues that impact their lives. There is no way to know the answers to these questions unless they are asked. Therefore, Extension will involve the Leadership Advisory Boards in a process to ask residents what is important to them – the 2015 Texas Community Futures Forum. Each county hostED a forum between December 1, 2014 and April 30, 2015 to identify locally relevant issues. A complete guide book has been developed to assist county faculty in coordinating the event with their Leadership Advisory Boards. Click below to download this useful resource.

Currently, we are in the process of scheduling the Leadership Advisory Board September meeting. TBA
