The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon-cutting for Believing in the NuYu mentoring program May 29 at the Chamber office at 425 W. Oglethorpe Highway in Hinesville.
Chamber CEO Leah Poole welcomed Johnson to the Chamber and applauded Believing in the NuYu for its efforts to help mentor the youth of Liberty County.
Believing in the NuYu is a mentoring program designed for teens ages 13-17. The free program helps teach youth a variety of life skills such as healthy eating, art, community service and fitness. Eugene Johnson started the program with his daughter Rafaela Johnson, and he believes they can help kids improve their self-esteem and learn to participate in healthy activities.
“The youth are our future,” Rafaela Johnson said. “At Believing in the NuYu, we will support them and help them to believe in themselves.”
The mentoring program operates Monday through Thursday in Connection Church at 116 Patriots Trail and meets every Friday at the YMCA, 201 Mary Lou Drive. For more information, call 320-4397.
