Terrell County Youth Center continues to keep children off the streets
DAWSON, Ga. (WALB) – The Positive Direction Youth Center is back for its 19th year and they believe it will be another year of keeping kids off the streets.
“They like to paint. They love what we call crab football, and the first time I saw that I was just excited then they have the chance to do hoverboards and it’s better than just doing nothing, ”he said. said the founder and director of Positive Direction, Dorothy Tomlin.
Over the past year, Tomlin said their enrollments have grown significantly since the start of the pandemic.
She believes days like their annual Fun Friday are a big factor in keeping kids on a positive path.
Parents will be able to go to work and have peace of mind knowing that their children are in school, fed, have lots of social interactions and are motivated to want to learn.
In the midst of a pandemic, they still require children to wear masks at all times in class when they are learning and when they are on the move on days like this.
Tomlin said that if you want to register, you can go to their resource center Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. to register.
