Tracey Hall, Program Assistant

This is Tracey Hall, EYFP program Assistant, with the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Burke Center. Our program today is Empowering Youth and Families Program.

The NC Empowering Youth and Families Program (EYFP) focuses on opioid prevention education for middle school youth and their caregivers in rural North Carolina. The goals of our 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.

Families participate in 10 weekly sessions at the county level. At the end of the weekly sessions, a family retreat is held. Families from different counties join together and design community outreach events to impact each county as a whole.

This is a free of cost program and a family meal will be provided at each session! An information session will be held on Feb 15, from 5:30-7:00 p.m. Our first training cohort will start Feb. 22.
