Hernando County is a recent addition to the areas we serve. It has been a long-standing goal to expand beyond the reach of Sumter and Lake Counties. Our collaboration with A New Generation has provided us with the opportunity to bring our Equipping Youth Program to Hernando.
Our Hernando County Equipping Youth Program is an interactive program specifically designed to educate preteens and teens on how avoiding risky behaviors can lead to more fulfilling and successful lives. We currently reach over a thousand students per year. Not only do we want Hernando students to come out of the Equipping Youth Program with a greater understanding of how drugs, alcohol, tobacco, sexual activity, and intimate partner violence can negatively impact their lives, we want them to understand they have value, their lives matter, and they can achieve great things if they focus on making healthy decisions while they are still young.
E3 seeks to create strong bonds between parents and their teens. We offer various programs and workshops designed to help parents gain a better understanding of the way their teens think and how to maintain open communication with them as they grow into young adults. We also offer classes catered towards parents who are separated so they can learn to effectively communicate without putting additional stress on the child. We want to help parents feel empowered and ready to guide their teens towards choosing a healthy lifestyle.
E3 family promotes positive youth development, risk avoidance prevention programs, and family-friendly policies to strengthen the community as a whole. Our teens are the next generation of decision makers. By providing them with the means to make conscious, informed, future-focused decisions, we are enabling them to be a force for change in Hernando County as they enter adulthood.
