Mission Statement

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.
