Extension is founded on the belief that knowledge can change lives. Through practical education Extension helps individuals and businesses solve problems and develop skills to positively impact their future. Beyond the direct benefits to the 298,000 participants in our Extension Cook County programs, there is a benefit to society as well. Cook County Extension believes that success starts with an individual and that this leads to a ripple effect that extends positive benefits to family members, community members and society as a whole. Changing lives is important to all of us.
Extension reaches out to provide research driven education to everyone, at every phase of their life. Whether you are seeking better health, better relationships or greater opportunity, Extension can help.
