    Waukesha County UW-Extension is a major outreach effort of the University of Wisconsin, putting university knowledge and research to work in your county.

    In partnerships with local residents and organizations, as well as the University of Wisconsin, Waukesha County develops innovative educational programs by:

    1. Strengthening neighborhoods by working with residents and community block clubs on issues of safety, neighborhood beautification, homeownership, and increasing inter-generational connections between youth and older adults. 
    2. Building local leadership by partnering with agencies, businesses, and local, state and federal government units. 
    3. Encouraging sustainable and profitable agricultural and horticultural businesses. Providing education on horticulture practices by consumers and the commercial industry (i.e. pesticides, herbicides) in order to protect and enhance our environment. 
    4. Teaching limited-income families, youth and elderly in the areas of nutrition, food safety, physical activity, and resource management. 
    5. 4-H allows residents to create a supportive environment for diverse youth and adults to reach their fullest potential.  In support of this mission:  

    • Provide formal and non-formal community focused experiential learning
    • Develop skills that benefit youth throughout life.
    • Foster leadership and volunteerism in youth and adults.
