About University of Illinois Extension

4-H has been providing growth opportunities for more than 100 years with an eye toward developing the 5 Cs - confidence, competence, connection, character and caring. 4-H helps youth learn skills for living through numerous educational programs, community clubs, special interest groups, school outreach, day camps, military clubs, workshops and more.

SNAP-ED or the Supplemental Nutrition Education educates low-income families on how to plan and prepare nutritious meals; shop wisely and save money; eat better and store food safely.

Horticulture, Master Gardener and Master Naturalist programs offer training to develop well-educated "Master Volunteers" who; in tum, provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and horticulture within our community.

Family life programs help to enhance youth, family and community well-being through a variety of newsletters, classes and programs.
