What is North Carolina Cooperative Extension Military Outreach?

N.C. Cooperative Extension Military Outreach exists to design programs that help North Carolina military youth, families, and veterans find positive ways to cope with stress of military life.

Active Duty, National Guard, and Reserve service members live throughout North Carolina – they are in out backyard. Some counties have a higher concentration of families, while others have only one. Because these families are spread throughout the state, they all do not have the support systems that are typically available as active duty military families who live on or near military installations.

We offer a variety of programs and activities to support the military families in North Carolina. Visit our calendar in the left hand column of our webpage for events offered by NCCE Military Outreach as well as our partner organizations.

A few of the programs and activities:

  • N.C. Cooperative Extension Military Outreach “Red, White & Blue” 5K
  • Nation Youth Science Day
  • NC Zoo Snooze
  • “Rock the Wall” at Triangle Rock Club
