New youth center opens in Nashville

January 6, 2005

Nashville - There's a new place for kids to learn and grow in South Georgia.

The Berrien County Collaborative opened its new Youth Empowerment Services Center today. The 8,000 square foot building includes computer labs, art rooms, a parent information center and all kinds of resources for child development.

"It will be a one stop shop for youth and families. We run after school programs, tutorial services, family support services, delinquency prevention, lots of different services for our children and families here in Berrien County," said Gary Chapman, Director.

The new center is located beside the recreation fields just off Highway 76. It was built with grant money from the city of Nashville and the Department of Community Affairs.
