We Are Here for You

We are still here for you! Despite our office closure and class cancellations due to COVID-19, agents and staff are still working for you. You can still reach us by dialing our office number or emailing us. We will work to assist you with content related to agriculture, youth development, family and consumer sciences and community development as we always have. If issues cannot be resolved over technology or telephone, we will conduct field visits but ask that you honor distancing guidelines and practice proper sanitation.

We will continue bringing you live programs every workday at 11:30 via our youtube channel, so be sure you subscribe! We've named this effort Live from Currituck Extension . Not only are we providing reliable and research-based content during this time, but experts are on hand to answer your questions live via the YouTube chat feature.

Also, keep your eye on our website for timely articles and information and look for the ways we are going to be creatively delivering programs to you during these times! We take seriously our responsibility to provide reliable, research based education to our citizens and we will continue to do so in a manner that also provides for staff and public health.
