Camilla--Twenty-five at-risk youth who didn't graduate from their high school got a second chance Friday thanks to a south Georgia program.

The Millennium Second Chance Education Center in Camilla trains and educates young people ages 16 to 21.

It provides vocational readiness training and workshops on a variety of occupations.

Program leaders say many of the graduates have already signed up for college or the military or have the skills ready to enter the workforce.

"They were told before that the wouldn't be able to amount to anything, and we turn them around we deal with them as an adult, job readiness, life skill classes, we educated them, how to get a bank account, how to get a checking account how to balance it, stress management classes we teach them all that stuff while they're a part of this program," said Nathaniel Lowman, Co-Director.

The program also operates centers in Sylvester and Pelham.
