Who We Are
Prairie View A&M University Cooperative Extension Program delivers practical research-based knowledge in agriculture & natural resources, youth-development, community & economic development, as well as family & consumer sciences in 35 counties across Texas.
We respond to the needs of underserved Texans through education in relevant subject areas that empower families. Cooperative Extension Program agents and specialists respond with answers, providing useful tools and resources to elevate our community to the next level.
How we serve
The Family and Consumer Sciences component recognizes that strong families are important to a prosperous and productive society. The family is the major provider of joy, security, values and goals. The Extension staff works to plan and deliver research-based family focused programs to underserved clientele, but, not excluding other audiences, that will serve as a catalyst to improve the quality of living.
