From energy conservation to raising better tomatoes and helping youngsters develop self-esteem, the University of Florida/ Volusia County Extension offers a wealth of practical information for today’s families.
Through a partnership among Volusia County, the University of Florida and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Extension Service can provide assistance with such community issues as water conservation, environmental protection, family health and nutrition, youth development and economic stability for Volusia's commercial agricultural enterprises.
The extension service is an off-campus educational branch of the University of Florida. Extension agents, who serve as the county's "teachers," reach more than 2 million people each year through presentations, telephone calls, lab diagnoses, pamphlets and other outreach programs.
This real-life learning approach, established in 1914 by the federal Smith-Lever Act, is one of the world's largest informal education and developmental organizations.
All University of Florida/IFAS/Volusia County Extension classes and programs abide by ADA requirements.
