Albany --  The Turner Job Corps Center got men to talk with their young men students Wednesday.   It was the Center's First Men's Conference, giving the students a chance to talk with good role models about issues facing young men.  

Hundreds of the young men students gathered in the Turner Job Corps gym to hear from local community leaders, health experts, even former NFL stars like Clyde Simmons. They talked about issues like leadership, AIDS, alcohol and drug abuse, and gang violence.

"We really got some great students. But when we have the outside help to come in, that's really working with us. I feel they are getting it now," said Center Director Steven Belk.

Belk said he wants to get more community leaders involved in the education of their students. Currently there are 830 students at Turner Job Corps from across the Southeast United States.
