Bronwood - Church leaders in Bronwood hope to turn an abandoned school building into the new home for their after school youth center.

A groundbreaking was held in front of the new home for The Positive Direction Youth Center. The old Martin School in Bronwood was shut down in the 1970-s, but they hope to renovate it for the new Youth Center.

Center Director Dorothy Tomlin says they need to raise three hundred thousand dollars for the renovation. Tomlin said "Going through different foundations, Asking for help. Knowing that this is an unserved community, and the children need something to do. "

 Tomlin said she hopes to have the new Youth Center open in the former school building by May 2007.

Currently they serve 54 children between the ages of 4 to 18.
