2016 Call for Positions
On December 14, 2016 UC ANR Vice President Humiston announced the the release of 26 CE positions from the 2016 call for a new round of hiring over the next two years. This new release continues the commitment for hiring to exceed projected turnover, thus achieving the goal of academic growth. And, as funding becomes available, UC ANR will consider additional positions.
January 12, 2016 solicited proposals for Cooperative Extension (CE) advisor and specialist positions in the ANR Update. The call identified positions for strengthening and expanding the UC ANR network to address programmatic gaps and emerging needs. Below this public webpage displays all 138 new CE position proposals (there is a search tool to assist in finding proposals).
The online submittal process was open from January 12 – May 5 (5:00 PM) to allow as much time as possible for internal consultation and external input from UC ANR stakeholders in all program areas. Submissions were accepted from the following official submitter groups:
- Strategic Initiative Leaders
- Program Team Leaders
- County and Multicounty Partnership Directors List
- Executive Associate Deans
The Review Phase was completed May 5 – August 1. All proposals were reviewed. The program area and unit reviews were conducted by the Program Teams; geographic groups of County/Multicounty Partnership and Research and Extension Center Directors, and the UC ANR affiliated colleges and school. These groups prioritized and provided rationale for the position proposals under their purview. This input was used to inform UC ANR Program Council’s recommendations and ultimately the UC ANR Vice President’s decisions. More information about the review process is available in the review orientation.

I am writing to support the Shasta-Trinity-Tehama Youth Advisor position being considered by the University of California. This position would ideally complement the vital work of the 4-H program in these counties. 4-H provides tremendous benefits to youth through experiential learning and leadership. The challenge at hand is how to expand these opportunities to youths outside the traditional club structure. Having a youth advisor will open up the possibility of seeking collaboration with schools, organizations and local governments to develop and evaluate educational programs that will have lasting impact.
I appreciate the University’s careful consideration of this position. If I can be of further assistance, please contact Bruce Ross in my Redding District Office at (530) 223-6300.
The City of Redding Recreation Division serves the needs of thousands of Redding residents each year by providing scores of fitness, educational and special interest programs for all ages ranging from infants to seniors. Some of these offerings include technology and natural resource camps. A full-time Youth Development Advisor would bring the expertise and resources of the University of California to assist in the development, delivery and assessment of new educational programs.
We have a history of working with the Shasta County Cooperative Extension office. Collaboratively we have offered on a very successful Farm Camp that has received awards from both California and American Farm Bureau. This hands on program is centers around experiential learning and has sought sponsorships to keep costs down to encourage participation and engage them in hands on learning. Having a Youth Development Advisor assigned to Shasta, Tehama and Trinity County would expand these kinds of opportunities. We look forward to this exciting new partnership opportunity.
If you have any questions, please call me at 530-225-4095.
Through Rotary and other scholarship programs, I have witnessed firsthand the leadership and communication skills developed by participation in 4-H programs. In addition, 4-H involves the entire family, sometimes resulting in parents returning to school to attain their high school diploma, and possibly attending our local community college.
The position of Area Youth Development Advisor – Shasta, Trinity and Tehama Counties is essential for the continued success of our youth – preparing them for productive careers that will grow the local economy and dramatically improve the quality of life for their families.
I wholly support the University’s positive consideration of this position. I can be contacted at (530) 527-4655 if I can provide any additional detail regarding the integration of the Advisor and the ongoing efforts in the Tehama County.

Engaging youth will help improve our community programs and interventions and will reduce risks and strengthen protective factors for youth. As a former Tehama County 4-H member I can attest to the positive impact of the program and believe 4-H assuming a leadership role in Youth Development in the community is a perfect fit.
If you have any questions I may be contacted at 530-528-4560.

A full-time Youth Development Advisor would bring the expertise and resources of the UC Extension system to leverage our rich community assets and coordinate and develop new science programs that light a spark in young minds while meshing with the Next Generation Science Standards. We have worked with the Shasta County Cooperative Extension office on a Museum and Community Partnerships grant from the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISENet). This grant award allowed Turtle Bay to receive an Explore Science – Zoom into Nano kit, designed to reach underserved audiences in local communities, and engage them in hands-on learning, with a focus on nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. Working with the UCCE Community Education Specialist, Nate Caeton, we offered two nanoscience workshops specifically to the 4-H program with approximately 40 members participating. Many of these youth came from smaller communities within Shasta County that have never been to Turtle Bay.
Having a Youth Development Advisor assigned to Shasta, Tehama and Trinity County would expand these kinds of opportunities. We look forward to this exciting new partnership opportunity.
