How We Work

Our Plan of Work - We Need Your Input!

CCE Staff and the Board of Directors will be actively engaging the community in feedback on the 2016-2020 Plan of Work to prepare for the next 4 year plan.  This is our working document incorporating community needs with activities and issues that are appropriate to CCE Wayne and all of the related extension teams that work with CCE: Lake Ontario Fruit Team, Cornell Vegetable Team, NWNY Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team, Finger Lakes Grape Program, Finger Lakes Eat Smart New York,  and our local 4-H, Ag, Master Gardner and Community Development programs.   Our current documents, adopted by the BOD in 2016 are listed below. We welcome your input, using the current document below, to provide feedback for our future.  Please email or take our survey below. If you have any questions, please talk with Beth Claypoole, Executive Director.

Program Delivery

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wayne County uses a number of methods to create learning partnerships and conduct educational programs. These methods include:

  • Volunteers are trained to work with program participants. This includes 4-H Leaders, Master Gardeners, Master Food Preservers, Family Budget Counselors, and Cornell Cooperative Extension Boards and Committee members.
  • Publications produced include newsletters, fact sheets and bulletins with up to date information on topics to aid you and your family or business.
  • Information technologies available to local county residents include the World Wide Web access, distance learning and satellite conference system. Outreach efforts allow for global exchange of ideas and knowledge.
  • Group education efforts include clubs, discussion groups, seminars, classes, forums, and clinics for youth, adults and businesses.
  • Tours and field trips provide participants with on-site educational opportunities for learning.
  • Networking and collaboration result in the application of Cornell Cooperative Extension expertise to assist people through community agencies, boards, and local government.
