Students learn to:
-develop healthy eating habits
-choose healthy snacks
-increase physical activity
-practice safe food handling
The youth program aims to enroll youth who come from limited-resource families in urban and rural areas.
Youth must be between the ages 5-18 and qualify for at least one of the following:
-attend a Title 1 school in which 50% or more of the students qualify for free or reduced-price breakfast or lunch
-receive free or reduced-price school breakfast or lunch
-come from families receiving food stamps or other federal assistance
The youth program is delivered by EFNEP staff or volunteer teachers in schools and community-based organizations. Staff and/or volunteers utilize one of several university-approved curricula and teach a minimum of six one-hour lessons.
