The Coal County Program Advisory Committee for Family and Consumer Sciences identified three areas they feel most dominantly affect the residents of Coal County.  These three “Issue Teams” are Hunger, Risky Behaviors, and Jobs and Employment.


  • The Hunger Issue Team is dedicated to working towards reducing the number of Oklahomans experiencing hunger.
  • The Risky Behavior Issue Team is dedicated to working towards reducing the number of children and youth engaging in high-risk behaviors which lead to negative outcomes.
  • The Jobs and Employment Issue Team is dedicated to working towards Oklahomans increasing personal and community life readiness for employment and economic opportunities

If you have questions related to a specific program or to request a specific program please contact Family and Consumer Science Educator, Kelsey Ratcliff.


The Coal County OCES also offers other Family and Consumer Science programming outside of these Issue Teams.  Please contact Kelsey Ratcliff for inquiries about such programs.
