1/24/21: EYFP Catawba County Cohort joins other North Carolina counties for our first virtual confluence. Today we celebrated our participation in NCSU’s Empowering Youth Families Program and learned about Community Action Planning from NCSU’s Dr. Sarah Kotzian. Community Action Planning was a big help in developing a plan to share with our community!
We also partook in an informative program from The Poe Center with guest speakers. For a group activity, the youth and their caregivers worked together to devise a structure built of marshmallow, spaghetti and masking tape!
This event was the first of a two part series to conclude Catawba County’s first time offering the Empowering Youth and Families Program to our county. Families responded positively to the presentations and activities across the board.
