ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Boys & Girls Club and Dougherty County school system are teaming up for a work-based learning program.

Juniors and seniors who are at least 16-years-old with a 2.5 GPA are eligible for the new program if they are club members and a part of the school system's Career, Technical and Agricultural Education Program.

The club will give $125 each quarter to students who maintain their grades and participation as well as a $500 scholarship for seniors.

"We want to make sure that a great future is within reach of all young people and making sure that they are academically successful and that they have the other skills to ensure that once they move on from high school that they can not only be ready for post secondary education but a world of work," said Marvin Laster the  Boys & Girls Club Assistant CPO.

10 juniors and 10 seniors will be picked for the program next semester.
