For Agency Partners
Getting started with a series of EFNEP classes is easy and begins with a phone call to Ohio State University Extension at 937-224-9654 ext. 120. Our EFNEP staff is happy to discuss the program, answer your questions, and talk about a partnership. We can schedule a time to visit your agency/community site for a short presentation about the program and/or market the program to clientele. If you are not part of an agency or community site, but would like to be placed in an EFNEP class, we can provide you with a listing of available classes, including locations, dates and times.
EFNEP classes are offered free of charge to qualifying Montgomery County residents. EFNEP program assistants will bring all materials for the program, including food for tastings, incentives and handouts. The agency or community site is simply responsible for supplying a space large enough for 5-15 participants, the typical size of an EFNEP group, and for coordinating with the program assistant for scheduling, recruitment, and participant retention.
For Class Participants
Programs can be conducted in small groups, an agency, a community center or at a church group. Workshops are 90 minutes per session. EFNEP provides 9 fun-filled sessions.
Groups can be organized with:
- a group of friends or relatives interested in classes,
- organizations that want to sponsor a group to be held at their site or another community site, and
- churches that want to sponsor a group.
