Youth EFNEP 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.
Youth classes provide hands-on nutrition education, curricula that support Common Core State Standards and in-class food tastings.
Our services are offered at no cost to schools, organizations or programs where 50% or more of youth are receiving free or reduced-price school meals.
