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.
