The Extension Programme of Jayaraj Annapackiam College Started functioning with the acronym JACEP (Jayaraj Annapackiam College Extension Programme) when the college stepped into autonomy.


     JACEP envisages freeing the marginalized and weaker sections of rural areas, mainly the rural women from the shackles of social, political, cultural, educational and economical oppression with the voluntary service of students and staff. It simultaneously provides social dimension to the educational system of the college and inculcates social responsibility and commitment in the students. It brings forth responsibilities, co-operative team spirit and leadership qualities of the students.


     JACEP has adopted villages to ensure holistic and integrated development of the villages around Periyakulam within 30 kms from the college. Each department is entrusted with a village. It has taken all appropriate measures to bring about the advancement of rural women. It plans to impart the knowledge of social problems to gain practical experience in life.
