Children, Youth and Families at Risk Professional Development and Technical Assistance Program

CYFAR marshals the resources of the Land-Grant and the Cooperative Extension Systems so that, in collaboration with other organizations, they can develop and deliver educational programs to youth who are at risk for not meeting basic human needs. These programs provide youth with the skills they need to lead positive, productive, and contributing lives; participating youth make a difference socially. CYFAR-PDTA partnering universities will build connections, competency, and capacity to help communities develop and sustain holistic programs for at-risk children, youth, and families who are under-served and under-represented. CYFAR-PDTA will provide professional development and technical assistance to Sustainable Community Projects (SCP) to ensure continued development and implementation of the CYFAR Sustainable Community program. CYFAR-PDTA, collaboratively through the Extension system, will provide the components of programming, evaluation, technology, and technical assistance.
