Nashville - A South Georgia county will soon have a new center to keep kids on the right track.

Monday, the Berrien County Collaborative broke ground on its new Youth Empowerment Center. The 8,000 square foot facility will offer several after school programs and family planning activities. "It will house our collaborative staff as well as space for youth programs, our family case management programs, and just lots of community activities we've started to empower our youth and children," said Gary Chapman, Collaborative Director.

Construction on the center will start tomorrow and should be finished in about six months.

The $600,000 building is paid for with a grant from the Department of Community Affairs and donations from local businesses.
