At-risk youths in Clarksville will have another place to seek guidance in getting their life on track.
The City of Clarksville recently announced that a mentoring program, called Dream Catchers will begin Tuesday, January 22nd at the Burt-Cobb Center from 4 p.m. until 5 p.m. with participants to meet weekly.
Officials say at-risk youths, ages 13 to 17-years old will be in a small group atmosphere and due to the sensitive nature of the topics covered in this program, a parental consent form must be signed in order for the youths to participate in the program.
In addition to small group sessions, officials say there will be presentations made by several guest speakers that will discuss how teens can make healthy and informed decisions, stay away from drugs and reach their potential.
