TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The lifesavers program was held at the Tupelo Police Athletic League on Sunday evening.

The program is designed to help young women grow into successful adults.

"We're going to be teaching on self-esteem," Lifesavers CEO Suntanna Andress said. "They go through different stuff in life, and they may feel like they can't talk to a parent. Some may not have anyone to talk to. That's what this organization is here for."

Girls ages 8 and up can be a part of the program.

Anyone interested can call 662-687-0007 to contact the organization.
