Description:  The UConn People Empowering People (PEP) program is a personal, family and leadership development program with a strong community focus. The goals of PEP are to help participants have a greater understanding of personal strengths, increase their communication skills, and increase their understanding of and involvement in the community. PEP is delivered by an Extension-trained facilitator through 2-hour weekly sessions for 10 weeks. The curriculum includes sessions on values, communication skills, problem solving, parenting, action planning, community assessment, and community issues or related topics. Following the formal training sessions, participants will complete an individual and/or group project(s) that benefits the community.
