Cooperative Extension

The primary mission of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service Currituck County Center is to help create prosperity for our community through programs and partnerships focused on agriculture and food, health and nutrition, and 4-H youth development.

The local office is part of a state-wide network supported by our State’s two land-grant universities – North Carolina State University and North Carolina A&T State University. Offices are located in each of the 100 counties with a staff of trained professionals who can help:

  • families,
  • businesses,
  • community groups,
  • and individuals

deal with the problems facing them today.

Information is provided in a number of convenient ways. Workshops, special interest classes, and seminars are offered each month. One-on-one help is available by appointment. Newsletters, bulletins, online publications, videos, and leaflets are available.
