AEHC - What We Do

We empower individuals and families to improve quality of life through continuing education, leadership development, and community service

Continuing Education: We work with the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service.  The Cooperative Extension Service connects trusted research to the adoption of best practices in Family and Consumer Sciences including: wellness, personal finance, nutrition, and personal development.

Community Service:  We believe that by working together we can create opportunities, enrich lives, and strengthen communities. Our members contribute to a wide variety of community service projects across the state.  Last year, AEHC members volunteered a total of 705,275 hours with an estimated dollar value of $16,616,279.
