Leaders of the Youth First Organization hope to help reduce the risks of high school students dropping out because they can't handle their home problems and their school work.
Their latest program got a huge boost today from AT&T, who donated $10,000 to help reach more students.
"The reconnecting youth program provides a semester long class taught by social workers in all of the high schools in the region," said President Parri Black. "Those Youth First social workers can make a huge difference in the lives of kids and families and they do every day."
State Representative Suzanne Crouch was also at today's news conference and thanked AT&T for supporting young people in our community.
