EYFP is made of two components: Strengthening Families Program 10-14 and Powerful Communities.
The Strengthening Families Program 10-14 is an evidence-based parent, youth, and family skills-building curriculum that:
Powerful Communities is a pilot program written by NC 4-H to equip our participants with the knowledge and understanding about the opioid crisis in the US and in their county. Powerful Communities empowers cohorts of families to resist opioid misuse and to tell their communities what they have learned.
Beginning in 2019, EYFP also began piloting Powerful Families (PF), a new family communication and relationship program that complements Powerful Communities (PC). In Fall 2020, all EYFP programs will use PFPC for the entirety of their family sessions.
