Who We Are

Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE) is part of the national Cooperative Extension System, which is dedicated to meeting the needs and challenges of local communities by using federal- and university-backed reserach to best implement change and improve the lives of all residents. It does this by connecting local communities to land-grant universities, which in Virginia are both Virginia Tech and Virginia State University. Simply, we are the outreach branch of Virginia Tech and Virginia State University. No matter where you travel in Virginia or in the United States, you can find Cooperative Extension and we are pleased to serve you!

Here in the City of Alexandria we focus on providing FREE educational programs in:
  • 4-H Youth Development
  • Family and Consumer Sciences
  • Agriculture and Natural Resources (housed in Arlington County)
  • Community Viability (housed in Arlington County)

If you would like more information about any of these programs, either participating or volunteering, or if you are another organization looking to partner with us, please call  ((703) 746-5546) or email ( us.
