Third Thursday Thing: A Success Story for Reaching Underserved Clients
Andries, Kenneth M.; Simon, Marion; Rivers, Louie
Journal of Extension, v54 n4 Article 4IAW1 Aug 2016
Kentucky State University has been conducting a monthly field day known as the Third Thursday Thing for many years. This program has been successful in reaching limited-resource, minority, and underserved clients. The success of the program has indicated that a nontraditional approach can be successful when working with nontraditional clients. The program also strives to offer topics that focus on interests of those operating small farms and to have specific months dedicated to specific topics. Departing from some of the traditional meeting scheduling protocols has proved to be successful and continues to attract new clients to the program.
