Valdosta leaders found a new way to help parents get more involved in their kids schooling.

The Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce teamed up with Regal Marine on a program called helping your child succeed.

Group leaders travel to area businesses during lunch hour to teach parents more and better ways to help their children both in and out of school.

"We know that after you've worked 8 to 10 hours the last thing you want to do is go help your kids with math and social studies. We give them tips and let them know its important that they are involved in a child's schooling," says Greg Justice of Regal Marine.

The program just started but organizers hope it will soon offer after-school activities and grow into a mentoring program for students and parents.
