4/8/21: First of all, we would like to begin by saying hello to everyone and that we are so excited to have the opportunity to be involved in EYFP! We are overjoyed to be one of the first few counties to offer EYFP in Tennessee, and we can’t wait to keep y’all updated about the sessions and bring you with us on this fun journey. We began our Spring Cohort and completed our very first session last Tuesday (4/6/21).
We had an amazing family come and join us, and they were great at participating in the activities and lessons. We began by introducing ourselves and explaining the program. We went over what to expect over the next 10 weeks, signing registration forms, and just getting to know everyone. We ate pizza, played an ice-breaker game to learn everyone’s favorite dessert (the crowd favorite was doughnuts), and then we talked to the family about their self-image throughout the lesson. The youth were shy at first, but by the end of the night they really opened up to us. It was a very successful night and we cannot wait to see if more families come to the next meeting!
