Local organization aims to uplift local youth
PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG / WECP) – A newer organization aims to help at-risk youth and young adults in our local community.
Strong Ways Solutions Youth Support Center is a relatively new organization.
He seeks to break down the barriers between negative choices with our local youth.
The founder and facilitator of the group, Chandler Strong, started this program.
He uses his life experience as inspiration to teach adolescents and young adults what he sees as tools for breaking down mental barriers.
“I ended up getting robbed and shot in the back. The bullet missed my spine by two inches, I died during the operation. As I was lying there, I saw my mother and my family lying around the bed crying. I promised God, if you took me through this, I would make sure my story was told to all the children in the world. And tell them what happened to me, so I can take another path, ”said Chandler Strong, mentor, role model, father and motivational speaker.
Strong says the main goal of the program is to help children fill college campuses rather than prison campuses.
The center offers various programs, such as after-school tutoring classes and personal development classes.
This is a free program that meets on Tuesdays from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
For more information on his program, visit their website or contact Chandler at (850) 252-0265.
