LSU AgCenter Extension Volunteer Corps (EVC)

The LSU AgCenter has employed a multitude of dedicated and talented people through the years who have a countless array of skills and abilities. This expertise includes skills in youth development, production agriculture, working with families and communities, managing people and offices, providing clerical support, bookkeeping and much more. Through retirements in years past, much knowledge and skills have been lost, and our ability to fill vacancies has been limited. In order to fill the gap, the LSU AgCenter has established the Extension Volunteer Corps (EVC).

The EVC will allow us to draw upon a wealth of experience and expertise by engaging LSU AgCenter retirees (both research and extension) and other qualified retirees from state land-grant universities as volunteers to assist us in continuing to meet the needs of our clients. We hope you may be just the person to do that!
