KAMIAH -- The Upriver Youth Leadership Council (UYLC) will be offering the Strengthening Families Program (SFP) beginning March 4. This program is a free, 14-week interactive workshop for parents and children ages 6 to 11. Classes will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Kamiah High School, and are facilitated by Trena Schlieper, Jennifer Heitman and Tina Brotnov. 

The sessions, which are designed to improve relationships between parents and their children, include dinner, games, discussions, shared activities and more. Each week's two-and-a-half-hour session begins with a free family dinner.

"We will offer nutritious meals that are family-friendly through a partnership with our local churches," said Sharlene Johnson, UYLC executive director. Johnson also noted that there will be family-friendly door prizes throughout the course and that all graduating families will be entered into a drawing for a grand prize. Childcare for younger children is available, as well as mileage reimbursement for all families who complete the entire 14-week class. 

For information, including how to register for upcoming sessions, contact Sharlene Johnson at 208-743-0392 or email upriverylc@gmail.com
