Albany - - An albany church is reaching out to boys in the community to keep them busy and learning during the summer. 

The Mt. Zion Baptist Church Youth Academy targets boys 9 to 14 years old. They study reading, writing, and math.

On top of that, students get to interact with professionals in the community and learn about their careers.  

"To instill in them like we said some good core value, to keep them on track in their academic classes to keep certain things on their mind during the summer that will help them bridge the gap from year to year," says youth pastor Brian Jones.

Today the group heard from a family doctor, a pharamacuetical sales representative, and other business professionals.

About 20 boys participate in the summer program.
