The Goochland County office of Virginia Cooperative Extension is your local connection to Virginia’s land-grant universities, Virginia Tech and Virginia State University. Through educational programs based on research and developed with input from local stakeholders, we help the people of Goochland County improve their lives. We provide education through programs in Agriculture and Natural Resources, Family and Consumer Sciences, 4-H Youth Development and Community Viability.
Goochland Leadership Enterprise (GLE) classes introduce Goochland residents to their county by providing information on topics such as the county’s history, county departments and services, agriculture, economic development and the budget process. Participants are introduced to both country and state government officials. GLE hosts 12 sessions, typically every other Wednesday, at 7:00 PM from mid September through mid March with one daytime meeting at the State Capital. Sessions are held at different locations in the county to provide further insight into Goochland's history and environment. The registration fee is the only cost to the participant and covers materials and meals during Orientation, Day at the Capital, Dinner with the Supervisors and the Graduation Dinner. Scholarships are available on a need basis. For additional information, brochure, and application call the Goochland Extension Office at 804-556-5841
