BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Louisiana State Youth Opportunities Unlimited received $300,000 Tuesday as part of AT&T'S Aspire education grant.

LSYOU gives students at risk for dropping out access to teachers and computers on LSU's campus so they can improve grades and enter post-secondary education.

LSYOU plans to use the money to hold a 5-6 week summer program full of academic work, counseling and fun activities.
