Building a better rural America

Take Out Menu

The NCRCRD, in partnership with state Extension program leaders in its 12-state region, is pleased to facilitate cross-state sharing of Extension Community Development programming through “Take Out Menu” webinars. Programs featured in this series of webinars are available to be taken out of the states that developed the program (delivered in another state through a partnership arrangement). Conditions and terms for taking a program out will vary.  Each webinar discusses the intended audience, an overview of the program, what might be done by the state that produced the program, and what might be expected of a state wanting to host a program. 

If, after reviewing the webinar, you feel you wish to pursue the opportunity further, first touch base with the state Extension program leader in your state. A list of state Extension program leaders in the North Central region is found at: http://ncrcrd.msu.edu/ncrcrd/extension_liaisons. If you are not from a North Central state, contact your region’s Regional Rural Development Center for information about who to contact.  Links to the other three RRDCs are found at: http://ncrcrd.msu.edu/ncrcrd/home
