The Community, Youth, Families, Food and Nutrition Unit delivers outreach education programs designed to empower the residents of the island on a myriad of topics and issues. With respect to the island community, the unit works to strengthen community-based programming through capacity building of local citizens and the various community partners and collaborators. The unit employs a cooperative process in which people of the community and government leaders arrive at group decisions and together design programs to strengthen the social and economic well-being of our island community.

The unit also carries out several outreach education programs aimed at fostering an building strong families, youth and communities that are important to a stronger and resilient island community. The unit promotes developing both family and youth potential through learning experience using research based curriculum. Base programs are designed to foster healthy learning activities by addressing topics such as self-learning experiences and management, global understanding, family communication personal development, understanding diversity, and career planning. Equally important to the role of CYFFN is how families make dietary choices that contribute to healthy lifestyles. This includes educating the citizenry about the causes and prevention of food borne illnesses and the threats to our local food supply in times of emergency. CYFFN Extension professionals help blend these program areas into a seamless localized content covering diet, health, food-safety and helping address value-added opportunities for locally grown fruits and vegetables.

An added dimension to the capacity of CYFFN's programming resources and capabilities is its constant linkage with other Land Grant Extension professionals throughout the nation that are engaged in community, youth families, food and nutrition work.
