A free meal, new games and activities for your family, developing communication skills, exploring personality traits, making new friends, … what do all of these things have in common? They are skills and opportunities that you’ll experience when you participate in the Empowering Youth and Families Program (EYFP) this spring!
The Empowering youth and Families Program builds on the strengths that your family already has and trains you to make a positive impact on your community. After each series of ten sessions, we meet with other NC EYFP families to develop a plan for a community event in our county. This event will involve the public in a hands-on, educational experience. The event will be designed and implemented by the families participating in each county.
If these benefits weren’t enough, each of our lessons gives you a new tool to add to a very important toolbox in your home – your prevention toolbox. There’s a great reason why our program focuses on middle-school youth. At this age, youth are faced with higher amounts of peer pressure, introduced to new things, and they are beginning to make independent decisions.
Our program puts emphasis on goal setting, refusal skills, identifying personality traits, and the importance of communicating openly with those in the home. EYFP’s approach to prevention is creative, exciting, and involves the whole family. By showing the youth that they have the capability to make a positive impact on their community, our goal is to keep them involved and invested in all that they do.
