Teen Outreach Program

Posted:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) The Central Louisiana Volunteers of America chapter will be starting its Teen Outreach Program this September.

The Teen Outreach Program is designed to prepare CenLa youth for a brighter future.

The Teen Outreach Program is offered to boys and girls ages twelve to seventeen from Rapides Parish.

Leaders from the Volunteers of America say the teen outreach program gives boys and girls a positive venue for after school activities.

"I mean we see the kids blossom. We have seen them transition from little shy kids to very happy and talkative children. We have seen grades improve. We have seen kids just grow. They have excelled tremendously," said Tessa Mathews.

The deadline to sign up for the Volunteers of America Teen Outreach Program is September tenth.
