Since 1913, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Monroe County (CCE-Monroe) has responded to the needs of local residents with unbiased, research-based information, tools and education that people have come to depend on and trust. Our programs are developed in direct response to community input, and are based on the most current information available from Cornell and other Land Grant universities from across the nation.
The mission of Cooperative Extension is to enable people to improve their lives and communities through partnerships that put experience and research knowledge to work. Extension staff and trained volunteers deliver education programs, conduct applied research, and encourage community collaborations. Our educators connect people with the information they need on topics such as commercial and consumer agriculture; nutrition and health; youth and families; and more. Our ability to match university resources with community needs helps us play a vital role in the lives of individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout Monroe County.
We are both publicly and privately supported and depend upon generous donations from those who value the educational programming and resources we provide.
Your donations support our farmers, ensure local food access, promote healthy communities, positively affect our local economy through development of agri-tourism opportunities, bring communities together through shared educational experiences, and support employment opportunities through workforce training. Additionally, the 4-H Youth Development programming we provide empowers our youth with the skills needed to lead for a lifetime.
We focus on: Education, Community Benefit and Economic Development
