EFNEP Youth Programs

EFNEP Nutrition Educators collaborate with schools and community agencies that serve at-risk youth to offer group nutrition education programs. Programs are usually a four- to six-lesson series held in a school or community setting. We offer programs for youth grades K-12 with a focus on fun, hands-on activities. Our programs are offered both during school time and out-of-school time, and can include food preparation.

Target audience: Participants are at-risk youth grades K-12.  The program is offered with organizations that work with the target population such as schools, after-school programs, teen centers, alternative education centers, and local youth groups.

Class topics: Topics covered in the EFNEP youth curricula broadly include: USDA’s MyPlate, Food Safety, Physical Activity and Body Image.
