Educating with Extension Newsletters

Each month, the Extension Service publishes a newsletter about its exciting programs and events both past and upcoming. See what we are doing and how you can become involved. 

For our October 2023 newsletter, we featured an article written by Alicia Betancourt, Extension Director, The Pursuit of Knowledge: Benefits of Lifelong Learning.learn

"Lifelong Learning has become essential in a world constantly changing due to fast-moving technology, evolving job fields, and shifting cultural norms. Lifelong Learning means continually trying to learn new things and gain new skills throughout your life. Lifelong Learning helps you grow personally, improve your career, and improve society. We will look at how and why to get engaged in learning  throughout the Keys. "
