-A A +A

Youth Strong organizers have scheduled a meeting March 27 at the Kentucky State Police Post 5 in Campbellsburg about how people can get involved in an in-school mentoring program.
The mentoring program gives students extra guidance with the goal of helping them to reach their potential, discover their strengths and become successful, organizers say.
Student mentoring will be supported hrough a grant received by the 12th Judicial District in Henry, Oldham and Trimble county schools.
Studies show mentoring programs can boost youths’ self-esteem, academic achievement and peer relationships and reduce drug use, aggression, depressive symptoms and delinquent acts.
Organizers are seeking in-school mentors to spend about one hour a week for activities in schools.
Those interested, should attend the March 27 event at 160 Citation Lane in Campbellsburg, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Our Lady of Peace KentuckyOne Health will provide a light dinner.
