County extension agents represent the backbone of the APES program. They identify local interests, sponsors, meeting facilities, select discussion leaders, explain program objectives, develop a financial plan, administer all exams, plan and coordinate the awards program, select participants for the state seminar and identify seminar sponsors and complete the final report and select counselors to attend the state seminar At the state seminar they are always willing to assume whatever role is necessary for the program to have a successful conclusion.
The mission of Extension is to make a difference in the lives of Kentucky citizens through research-based education. The County Extension Agents who participate in the The American Private Enterprise Youth Program are truly the best of the best.
Without you, the program would not be possible. Thank you!
