Family and Community Education Clubs (FCE)

For more than 100 years, a network of friends in communities across the state has shared these common goals:

  • to learn through shared experience,
  • to improve home and community life,
  • to strengthen adult education,
  • to promote projects that enhance family and community life.

Through our rich history, we have grown from small community clubs to a worldwide network focused on growth through education. You may recognize us by​ some of our earlier names: Home Demonstration Clubs and Extension Homemakers.​

Everyone is invited to visit and join FCE. Please see our regular club meeting times and locations on the right side of this page. FCE Clubs are advised by the local UT Extension office. If you would like more information about the FCE clubs or would like to join one of our clubs, please contact Tennille Short for more information at (731) 668-8543 or ztshort@utk.edu.
