The Madison Police Department, along with several local organizations have teamed up to help teens in our area.
The organizations have set up a program called the "Show Me Strength Project."
The program is designed to give kids a structured, supervised and productive use of free time by using strength training and mentoring.
"We're going to talk about nutritional guidance, we're going to talk about overall mental and physical growth and everybody knows that within strength training it's also promoting self image, self esteem," says Madison Police Officer Dave Meinert.
The program takes place every Thursday at 4 p.m. at the Salvation Army on Darbo Drive.
It's for teens ages 13 to 17, and it's FREE!
