Cooperative Extension: Bridging the Gaps
The Cooperative Extension System provides non-formal education and learning activities throughout the country. It is essential to determine gaps in our work and find ways to bridge those on a national, state, and local level. This pre-symposium will focus on how Cooperative Extension can bridge various gaps. The session includes an active discussion with National Program Leader, Toija Riggins, to find ways to work as a system to address gaps (relationships, PR, and data) in communicating our value to partners. Roundtable discussions and Ignite presentations will be used to determine and address gaps in our client's knowledge on various financial topics and gaps in training/professional development and materials. This session is open to all AFCPE professionals, especially Extension professionals and those who work directly with clientele in counseling and/or community settings.

Pre-approved for 4.5 CEUs
