Discover Extension

Welcome!

Extension is founded on the belief that knowledge can change lives.  Through practical education we help 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.  We believe 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.  Connect with us via social media, trainings, workshops, and print materials.
