SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The city of Savannah is putting local youth to work.

Forty teens between the ages of 14 and 16 are participating in the pre-apprentice program - making home repairs to four homes in the area this week.

The seven-week program gives the teens' academic assistance - life skills development and job skills. The teachers and staff said they are happy to teach the students these skills.

"Work skills, work ethic - we all need those skills. We're teaching them how to be great citizens of Savannah - how to look out for your fellow man and teaching them to be great employees and show up to work on time and also accountability," said Tessa Livingston, program coordinator.
