Family Community Education (FCE)
One of the many ways Oregonians receive information from the OSU Extension Service is through Extension study groups which are open to all interested people. The Oregon Association for Family and Community Education is an organization of people who participate in study groups.
The FCE program offers educational opportunities to help individuals and families manage their resources to meet needs for food, clothing, finance, shelter, parenting, and human relationships.
Please contact the Extension office at (541) 278-5404, or via email, if you are interested in participating in any of our volunteer organizations or study groups.
