Come grow with us!

The University of Illinois Extension is a statewide network of professionals dedicated to creating local community impact and statewide transformation. We translate research and knowledge into practical programs for Illinois residents. Our programs target youth and adults, individuals and families, as well as business owners and community leaders.

Our staffing needs are diverse, but we often have openings for those interested in education, agriculture, environmental stewardship, food and nutrition, and community development. And we are always on the lookout for those gifted in office administration, program planning, IT, and communications!
