Fourteen families attended Maui Economic Opportunity’s Youth Services Ohana Night on March 24 at the nonprofit’s Wailuku office.

The evening opened with dinner, followed by a game of Outburst. The winning families chose different board games to take home to play.

Each family took a picture together which will be turned into a puzzle for the next family strengthening activity. Families will work on the puzzle together, record their progress, and have the puzzle framed.

Maui County Tobacco Free Coordinator Mary Leyva also spoke to the group about the dangers of e-cigarettes and vaping.

MEO Youth Services runs suicide, bullying, substance abuse and smoking prevention programs for middle and high school youth in Maui and Molokai. Programs are offered at school, after school and during extended school vacations. Programs include community service, leadership, cultural and career-oriented activities with the goal of reducing risk factors in youth and strengthening families.
