Feed the Future
This project is part of the U.S. Government's global hunger and food security initiative.

Developed by the Global Forum for Rural Advisory Services (GFRAS), the New Extensionist is a global view of extension and advisory services (EAS) that articulates the role of EAS in the rural context and agricultural innovation systems.

The Learning Kit contains 13 modules designed for self-guided, face-to-face or blended learning. Modules should be used in conjunction with the accompanying workbook. Module 1, Introduction to the New Extensionist, provides the foundation and context needed for the other modules.
