VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –A new program in Valdosta is giving people a second chance.

C.H.A.N.C.E. Outreach Ministry is reaching out to anyone who wants to get into the workforce, including those who spent time in prison and people who dropped out of school.

Through a five day program, they'll give people life and job skills training. The classes are held at the Serenity Church.

"We have enough meetings about having another meeting but I believe it's time to get out and do something we have to get out of our comfort zone get outside of our churches get outside of our home and really find out what the issues are," said Steve Jackson, C.H.A.N.C.E. Outreach Program Coordinator.

The ministry's first meeting is Thursday at 7p.m.  at Serenity Church on North Lee Street for anyone who wants to volunteer. Next week, volunteers will go out and assess the needs of the community.
