The mission of Milwaukee County Cooperative Extension is to facilitate people’s use of university knowledge to make informed decisions that enrich their lives and enhance their communities.
By connecting county residents to up-to-date, objective, practical, research-based knowledge, we help them grow, change and prosper. They become more self-sufficient, lead healthier and safer lives, form strong and nurturing families, and thrive economically. Our primary customers are the people who live and work in Milwaukee County, both adults and youth. We make a special effort to reach those who are traditionally undeserved including minorities, low-income families, and people with disabilities. Our customers value high-quality, low-cost educational opportunities that emphasize practical skills they can put to use immediately.
