ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The 21st Century Program at Live Oak and Alice Coachmen Elementary schools will end this fall.

The Y will launch a new initiative to replace the program.

YMCA staff and educators will begin the Afterschool Explorers initiative at Live Oak Elementary school in September.

This program will offer health and nutrition information for up to 75 students.

Youth Development Director, Teresa Manning hopes it will expand to other schools in surrounding areas.

"We are combining education and after school fun into one program and that we are able to expand and just touch a lot of children's lives," said Manning.

The afterschool program will run Monday through Friday from the end of the school day until 6 p.m.

Funding for the Afterschool Explorers initiative is provided through individual donations and businesses.
