Achieving together what one cannot do alone
Building future cooperatives starting with our youth.
The mission of the Virginia Cooperative Council (VCC) is to promote the understanding of the history, purpose, services and bright future of farmer and consumer-owned cooperative organizations in the Commonwealth and their major contributions to the state economy and its citizens.
The not-for-profit Council strives to accomplish our mission primarily through educational programs aimed at the general public and especially at young persons. The Council works closely with the state’s land-grant universities, Virginia Tech and Virginia State, and 4-H and FFA programs in these efforts.
