As we transition from winter to spring, you may notice a few adjustments to our site. We are working to improve your experience as you continue to trust Illinois Extension to provide research-based solutions for everyday challenges. We appreciate your patience during this process. 

Strong leaders shape healthy communities.

Our greatest resource is our people. Illinois communities need leaders who provide clear direction, inspire creative problem solving, and create safe environments to work, learn, and grow. We know this responsibility weighs heavily on community leaders, so let us share the load. Illinois Extension is helping leaders and communities tackle complicated challenges in creating resilient communities.
