LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Boy Scouts are going back to school to help at-risk children. It's all part of the new after-school program inside the Nova Center at the California Community Center.
During the after-school program, students from Wheatley Elementary are getting help with everything from tutoring to improving their outlook on life.
We have about 30 to 40 kids who come here every day and they're recommended by school and get permission from their parents to come here and work on life skills -- resistance and things like that -- plus all the education programs.
The Nova program is funded by Boy Scouts of America and the Lincoln Heritage Council Chapter of Louisville. It started in early February at Wheatley Elementary School.
If students' grades improve by the end of the school year, leaders will consider similar programs at other schools.
