Special to The Chronicle

The Forsyth County Reclaiming Futures, together with The Forsyth County Extension and 4-H will begin a summer enrichment program called Paper City, for juveniles involved in the juvenile justice system. Participants are either in the Reclaiming Futures Juvenile Drug Treatment Court, or on probation or diversion in juvenile delinquency proceedings.

Paper City is designed with the guidance of Help Increase the Peace Project to inspire youth to achieve the American Dream through education and social justice.

A primary focus of the 14-week program that runs through Aug. 20 is to stimulate students to dream, and to understand the pursuit of happiness.

Professor David Peay, a professor in the education department at Winston-Salem State University, will lead the participants in the program curriculum on Tuesday mornings.

Shanika Gray, from the Forsyth County Extension, 4-H program, and in association with North Carolina A&T State University, will assist program facilitation.

On Thursdays, participants will engage in social activities. Judge Denise Hartsfield of Forsyth County District Court is the presiding judge in Reclaiming Futures Juvenile Drug Treatment Court.

The court has made referrals to the program.

Classes will be held at the Rupert Bell Recreation Center in Winston-Salem.
