Right Turn program aims to steer troubled youth back on track

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's never too late to turn your life around.

That's the message for nearly 500 local teens who will be part of two new programs called "Right Turn," and "Right Turn 2.0."

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer announced the programs, funded by federal grants, Wednesday morning.

Right Turn pairs teens who have been involved in the court system with adult mentors. The program aims to give them the resources to complete school, plan a career and overcome substance abuse issues.

"This is the kind of program that turns individual lives around, and ultimately, that's what turns the community around," Fischer said.

Right Turn still needs adult volunteer mentors.
