Empowering Youth and Families is a FREE 10-week family program with sessions for middle school youth and their parents / caregivers.

Face-to-face meetings are on Tuesdays from 5:30–8 p.m., from October 5– December 7. Dinner is provided!

You also have the option to participate online by ‘Zooming’ into the face-to-face meetings if that option works better for your family.

The goals of the program are to reduce youth substance use in rural North Carolina, to improve parenting skills of caregivers to assist youth in making healthy choices, to improve family relationships, and to empower families to lead community change to leverage support for healthier lifestyles within those communities. At the end of the weekly sessions, a free family retreat is held, with COVID-19 adaptations for the current session. Families will also join together and design community outreach events to impact each county as a whole.

Sessions are led by Extension staff members and other community experts who are trained facilitators. Visit the program website for more information.
