Burnett County Association for Home and Community Education


BCAHCE (Burnett County Association for Home and Community Education) offers opportunities for learning in a social setting, sharing what we learn, and caring to make a difference in our homes, communities and the world.


What is BCAHCE?

The Wisconsin Association for Home and Community Education, Inc., is a non-profit educational organization comprised of member associations in 59 counties in Wisconsin.

The organization is unique in that members extend the information they receive from the University faculty and other reliable sources to the membership and community.  Program planning and leadership training are provided by a collaborative effort of WAHCE, Inc. and the University of Wisconsin-Madison -Extension Family Living Program.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison -Extension faculty serve as advisors to both the state and county HCE Associations. Education programs are developed after careful study of statewide concerns.
