N.C. Cooperative Extension of Mitchell County Offers Empowering Youth & Families Program Welcome to Niki Maness

The Empowering Youth & Families Program (EYFP) focuses on improving the parenting skills of caregivers to assist youth in making healthy choices and the goal of EYFP is to reduce youth substance use in rural North Carolina. Strong family relationships and good communication skills serve as protective factors to help youth cope successfully with adolescent stresses and this 10-week program serves the whole family! Each week families meet, share a meal, and practice skill building, and Mitchell County Extension is excited to have Niki on staff to lead it. For more information, call Niki at 828-688-4811 or email niki_maness@ncsu.edu. EYFP is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and USDA.


Niki is native to the area and graduated from N.C. A&T State University in 2009. She aspires to restore and maintain the tight-knit community that she experienced during the most important years of her life. When she’s not working with the Empowering Youth and Families Program, you can find her chasing after her two very energetic little girls or getting into some sort of craft project.
