09/14/19: Nash County’s 2nd community event took place during the “It Takes a Village” Family Conference held by First Baptist Church of Middlesex, NC. Four members of Nash’s EYFP Team and Extension staff attended this event. We set up our booth and provided community outreach to the conference attendees. The event provided classes on bullying, drug prevention, and provided community connections to counseling services, the food bank, the clothing bank, and financial counseling.
During the event, we presented a real world simulation for teens. As part of hosting the Empowering Youth and Families Booth, we engaged youth and adults with our bingo game, program handouts, and recruitment information. Staff members Regina Moseley, Brenda Wind, Traci Dixon, Adrienne Williams, and Extension Director Sandy Hall were all in attendance of the event.
Nash County’s EYFP Group has decided to conduct a number of outreach/community events. We hope to reach as many people as possible throughout the county.
