What is EYFP?

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.


EYFP in Onslow County

Onslow County began programming for the Spring 2019 Empowering Youth and Families Program on February 25th. This was the first family cohort to participate in EYFP in Onslow County. Each family participates in a twelve session program that is designed to strengthen their relationships and empower them to lead community change.

Families also take part in a weekend retreat at Eastern 4-H Center in June, where they learn community action planning and create a vision for opioid misuse prevention in their community.
