Washington Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences

Members of WEAFCS strive to provide education and recognition for Extension professionals who impact the quality of life for individuals, families and communities.

The NEAFCS Creed

As an extension educator my prime concern is people.
I believe that it is my privilege to give to the best of my ability.
It is my responsibility to develop myself to be a better teacher and an understanding friend.
I accept the opportunity to help individuals, families, and communities to develop to their full potential.
And may I always be willing to accept the challenges of the times.
