Eastern Region FCE



Welcome to FCE; Family and Community Education Clubs. Working in partnership with county UT Extension FCS agents, FCE clubs provide a vital service in providing and promoting educational programs targeted to the needs of the county.

For more than 75 years, we have been a network of friends in communities across the state with these common goals:

  • to learn through shared experience,
  • to improve home and community life,
  • to strengthen adult education,
  • to promote projects that enhance family and community life.

Through our rich history, we have grown from small community clubs to a worldwide network focused on growth through education. You may recognize us by some of our earlier names: Home Demonstration Clubs and Extension Homemakers.

For more information about Family and Consumer Education in your county, visit our County Offices page to find your local UT Extension Office.
