To determine how the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) affects the quality of life (QoL) of its exemplary paraprofessional educators.


Qualitative telephone interviews with EFNEP supervisors (15), educators (28), and agency partners (15). Template analysis based on the University of Toronto's QoL constructs.


The EFNEP had a positive impact on 6 of 9 a priori categories: physical being, psychological being, social belonging, community belonging, practical becoming, and growth becoming.

Conclusions and Implications:

The EFNEP enhances the QoL of its exemplary educators, which suggests that the program's benefits go beyond those documented in participants.
