Message from the Interim Director of Extension

I had the opportunity to meet with many CALS alumni over the past two weeks. I gave an update on Extension, and it was great to see so many people express their support for UArizona Cooperative Extension. So many of our alumni have a connection with Extension. It was like talking with old friends, and we shared many stories about how they worked with Extension, either through 4-H as a youth or after graduation as they pursued their careers. Have no doubt about your interactions with individuals – they are impactful and long-lasting!

Arizona 4-H Youth Foundation Seeks Two Team Members

It is with great excitement that I share the Arizona 4-H Youth Foundation (AZ4-HYF) Board of Trustees seeks two full-time team members to advance the mission of the AZ4-HYF and Arizona 4-H. The AZ4-HYF has been masterfully stewarded and the Board of Trustees seeks energetic and capacity-focused development team members to build on the 1,600% percent growth (since 2018) in investments to the Arizona 4-H program and to build on the $2.4 million endowment to ensure Arizona 4-H is able to meet the goal of growing to serve 20,000 True Leaders annually because all Arizona youth deserve a high-quality 4-H experience!
