Angie Bush, Director of Transitional Aged Youth with Kentucky River Community Care, recently shared information with Whitesburg Rotary Club members on The Sapling Center that opened at 60 Jenkins Road in Whitesburg on Nov. 3.
The center is a drop-in resource center for youth ages 14-25. Services include individual counseling, group therapy, life skills training, youth group sessions and arts and crafts activities. All services are free.
Bush said the center focuses on making a difference in the health and life of youth by teaching them to be self-sufficient, avoid risky behavior and become capable and successful individuals. It is a place where young people can go to improve their situation, meet new people and become more self-confident through setting goals and working to achieve them, she said. The center is open from 12 to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and provides a positive, supportive and fun environment for young people.
For more information about the activities and services at the center, call 633-0730.
