A group of children and adults build a card tower.SUCCESS STORY
This was the first cohort organized and taught in Pender County since Covid-19 shut the program down.
The newly hired (May 2022) Program Assistant was able to recruit participants and launch the cohort, and
bring the program to a successful completion. Only one of the nine other County EYF Programs (Carteret
County) was also able to successfully complete a cohort in the Fall of 2022.

During 2022, we successfully completed the training one cohort of three families, including 4 caregivers
and 5 youth. The cohort participated in ten 2 hour-long class sessions, as well as a working confluence
weekend. Program attendance exceeded 95%. The Fall 2022 Cohort will launch 2 Public Awareness
Events within the next 60 days to increase awareness of the county’s opioid addiction crisis, and solicit
enrollment in the Spring 2023 EYPF Cohort.
The Empowering Youth and Families Program received assistance from 8 volunteer instructional
assistants. These volunteers donated 36 hours of volunteer time valued at $1,080.
