How We Can Help

USU Extension offers expertise and pertinent information specific to the needs of our county

4-H and Youth

4-H is learning by doing, and is available to all boys and girls in the 3rd through 12th grades, from urban, suburban and rural areas. First, an adult leader brings together youth that have common interests. Second, the youth choose one or more projects. Projects are chosen from among 100 project areas offered, or if you don't see the one you like, you can create your own project. Third, the group enrolls as a club, and fourth meets together to learn and have fun. Clubs are able to explore 4-H activities, events and trips. In 4-H there are events happening all year round.

WE ARE HIRING!

After School Club Leader (multiple positions): 4-H After School is a grant funded program designed to help youth enjoy enriching club activities in out of school time. Club leaders instruct groups of youth through various curriculum over the school year. Positions are available at Red Cliffs Elementary School, Mona Elementary School, Nebo View Elementary School, Juab Innovation Center, and Eureka Elementary School.

Community Garden

People of all ages enjoy the benefits of gardening. Because of housing situations for some residents, they are not able to participate in gardening activities. The new Juab County Community Garden will provide the opportunity for all residents to enjoy the benefits of gardening. There are 20 individuals plots sized at 4' x 10' located on the north side of the Juab County Fairgrounds in Nephi. The plots will be filled on a first served basis. In 2022, this garden will become a 4-H fundraising project.
