Albany - - A group of middle schoolers is learning the options that exist after high school.

60 Radium Middle School boys attended Albany State University Wednesday for a mentoring program sponsored by the university's Center for the African American Male and 100 Black Men of Albany.

The early-intervention program brings the middle school students on campus to interact with college students and get a feel of college life.

"We'll go and mentor to the students for a day or two at the school, then we bring them here on campus for a day on the yard with CAM, show them a motivational film series, let them see the other activities we offer here on campus, not just the academic side, but the social side and how they can fit into our overall vision, " says Coordinator Antonio Leroy.

This is the first time this group of students has traveled to the campus together.

Organizers would like to make it a monthly activity.
