posted Mar 1, 2019, 12:39 PM by East Burke High School

N.C. Cooperative Extension, Burke Center is piloting a new program, Empowering Youth & Families Program (EYFP), in Burke County aimed at strengthening families and the prevention of opioid misuse.

This program is for families with children 10-14 years old and will provide age-appropriate training in the art of family communication, how to handle peer pressure and sharing knowledge on opioid misuse. It has an end goal of the families working together to plan a community outreach event to impact the county as a whole.

 Our first program kicks off on March 19th! However, we will have an information session on March 12th at 5:30 pm at the Burke County Agricultural Building to sign up families and answer questions.
