GoodGuides Photography Club Keeps Youth Entertained

The GoodGuides youth are staying busy this summer with the Goodwill GoodGuides staff. They have started a photography club - some of their photos are featured above and below - as well as Fitness Fridays, where they hike at Ijam's Nature Center, roller skate, bowl or play laser tag. In July, they are heading to a Smokies baseball game and to the Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg.

The purpose of the Goodwill GoodGuides program is to help youth overcome disadvantages by building career skills and avoiding delinquency. Youth are paired with an adult mentor who supports them throughout their personal growth, offering a listening ear when needed.

We are still seeking mentors, both male and female. If you are interested in changing a life, learn more online or call 865.588.8567 for more information.
