FAMILY AND YOUTH EDUCATION

WYA family and youth education volunteers plan and offer programs to help parents raise healthy children. Committee objectives are to determine family and youth education needs in Waterford that fill current gaps in services and match the YA mission of preventing and reducing juvenile delinquency and court involvement. The committee conducts workshops and classes to inform and educate Waterford youth. Topics vary from anger management, depression, sexting, fraud, parenting skills and alcohol/drug misuse. Communication about events is sent via Blackboard Connect, email and the WYA Facebook page.
