South Ga. man starts youth mentoring program

(WTVM) - A South Georgia man who balances both school and work hopes to make a difference in his community.

Vann Calhoun is a senior psychology major at Albany State who also started his own barbershop. Now, he's forming a mentoring program through a non-profit organization called K4K.

Calhoun says he needs more mentors to keep kids on the right path.

"Basically, I feel like it's time for a change in the community, as far as the youth. Because if you bring the youth up better you will have a greater opportunity to push them in a different route, to actually give them advantages that they never had," he says.

Calhoun met with the Dougherty County School Superintendent. He hopes to work with the school system soon.
