Family and Consumer Sciences

Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service (OCES) links you directly to Oklahoma State University and the research-based information available through the land-grant university system.  OCES provides practical answers, based on scientific finding, to questions about agriculture and the environment; family life, health and nutrition; and rural and economic development.  Its educational programs are designed to enhance the quality of life for all Oklahomans-urban as well as rural.

Under the umbrella of the OCES there are four main disciplines:  Agriculture, Community Development, 4-H & Youth Development and Family and Consumer Science.

In the FCS and 4-H/Youth program areas, programming is focused in one of three impact areas on a state level.  The Impact areas are based upon input from National Initiatives, Advisory Committee results, clientele needs, and expertise of the local Educator.  The Impact areas are:  Family Resiliency; Family Economic Well-Being; and Food, Nutrition and Health.  Below is a listing of major programming, lessons titles, and resources available in each of the Impact Areas.
