(Children, Youth, and Families at Risk) Self
Study, first introduced as a staff development experience for
University of Missouri Extension faculty and their collaborators,
provides an opportunity to:
- learn about
CYFAR at the national
learn about CYFAR in Missouri at
both the state and local levels
- locate useful CYFAR resources
- reach low income and at risk youth and families more effectively,
including Hispanic/Latino audiences
The Self Study consists of four modules. You work through the
modules at your own pace.
- Module 1 is an introduction to the
National Children, Youth and Families at
Risk (CYFAR) Initiative.
- Modules 2 and 3 explore CYFAR efforts
past and present in Missouri.
Missouri programs targeting at risk audiences in Missouri are newly
created or integrated into on-going Extension programming.
Module 4 examines resources for partnering with Hispanic/Latino Populations.
