Our Story

Back in 2008, the UVU Family Science department launched a unique program that addressed how families could identify and build on their strengths and learn new skills from a researched-based curriculum to improve family life and relationships. The program has grown to include multiple sites across Utah County in partnership with the Alpine School District, servicing about 75 families a year. The Stronger Family Project is facilitated by advanced undergraduate and graduate students and supervised by UVU faculty in the Family Science  program.
