Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a program cost?

The cost for programming is dependent on the number of youth and the type of program that is delivered. Costs may cover materials and supplies for hands-on learning, such as crafting materials, embryology incubators, gardening supplies, etc. Costs will be discussed and agreed upon before programming starts.

Who facilitates the programs?

All programs are overseen by Weld County Extension staff. Facilitators may include Extension staff or trained volunteers. All volunteers are required to undergo a background check prior to working with youth.

Each program is designed with Colorado Academic Standards in mind and focuses on incorporating a wide range of learning styles and teaching techniques.
