Community Development

A community's sustainability depends on its long-term ability to meet residents' needs. One of our goals at K-State Research and Extension is to provide technical assistance and evidence based programs to citizens who want to make sure their communities survive and prosper. 

K-State Research and Extension can play a key role in helping people create a vision across traditional geographical, sociological, and political boundaries. As Henry Ford said "Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success." 

Community Vitality Opportunities

Volunteers are now being accepted for the Community Vitality PDC Literacy Project in conjunction with the Boys and Girls Club of Atchison. Please reach out to the Boys and Girls Club at (913) 367-9090 for more information on how to become involved.
