More support for Clovis teens

Amarillo, TX - Teens in Clovis are getting a second chance. There is a new program designed to offering more help to at risk teens.

They have only been around for a few months now, but Curry County teen court officials say their new life skills classes offer promising results. So much so, Curry County is applying for a more than $30,000 grant to invest in the program. It focuses on five different areas with "at risk" teens: physical abuse, emotional abuse, molestation, incest and abandonment. Instructor Steve Reshetar explained what the classes aim to teach.

"... help them understand what's going on in their life and give their brain the information it needs to try and make sense of things in their life and how they can handle conflict and how they can deal with their family situation or what's going on at school," Reshetar said.

Organizers will learn within the next few weeks if they will receive the grant money. If approved, they plan to invest it into more classes, facilitators and documentation evaluating student progress.
