Providing Quality Care
Kids get a good start as young learners with quality child care and preschool programs. Last year more than 1,000 providers enrolled in ISU Extension education.
ISU Extension helps teens learn to deal with peer pressure, communicate with parents and increase social skills. This makes them more likely to stay away from drugs and alcohol.
Food safety training.
More than 5,000 school and restaurant food service workers received safe food handling and preparation training from ISU Extension last year.
One in five Iowa school-age youth participate in ISU Extension programs; they gain self-confidence and life skills.
Partnering With Pros
ISU Extension clubs, camps and more than 14,000 science, engineering and technology projects are getting Iowa teens excited about these high-tech careers.
