Our Programs

For us, our work is more than a mission, it is a way of life for the people who work and volunteer with us. We're committed to strengthening the bonds between Utahns and our programs are a reflection of that vision. Our technical assistance, training, and other programs are designed to improve our communities, involve people in them, and strengthen our society as a whole.

In addition to our core civic improvement programs, UCIV achieves our goals through a variety of programs and initiatives in public policy; education and community support; public engagement; and more. We appreciate you using our website to learn about our programs but don't ever hesitate to contact us directly if you need any additional information. We can always be reached by email at info@utciv.org.

We believe that cooperatives are a vibrant model to address the economic and social needs of communities throughout Utah. The Beehive Cooperative Center supports a wide variety of cooperative enterprises in Utah with start-up, management, and other technical assistance.

We created the Beehive Cooperative Center to provide facilitation, technical assistance, advice, analysis, and access to information and tools for cooperative enterprises. Our pre-development work with startups helps to build business ownership, sound management practices, and economic health.

The Utah Farmers Market Network (UFMN) was founded to support farmers markets throughout the state. We work to strengthen farmers markets throughout the state because we believe that they are a crucial part of our food system and economy. We advocate for farmers markets as important community assets that provide cultural exchange, healthy local food and experiences, and real income opportunities for producers.

The Utah Farmer's Market Network website is currently being developed and will be available shortly. Until then, please follow our Facebook page for more information

Utahns deserve locally sustainable communities that reflect the diversity of our state and have a rich quality of life due to the collective gifts, talents, and dreams of our neighbors. Through facilitation, training, and coaching, we strengthen the capacity of neighborhood-based organizations and neighbors to mobilize existing assets, support community leadership and promote strong civic engagement.

We created the Utah Neighborhoods Conference to share information and experiences to strengthen the communities that Utahns call home. We actively encourage networking and information sharing to facilitate the development of partnerships between neighborhood organizations, nonprofit organizations, government, and the private sector.
