Thomas is planning to help young juveniles change their paths into positive ones.

Thomas has teamed up with the "Members of Diversity" organization to work closely with its "Connect Two" initiative.

The program's goal is to engage troubled youth and young adults with their family and communities.

The organization offers prevention programs for those who might be at risk of delinquent behavior. 

Some of West Virginia's law enforcement officers will also be donating their personal time to participate and to help mentor.

Members of Diversity is hosting a fair at the Morgantown Mall on Saturday April 13 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.

There will be information on how to sign up and participate in upcoming events.

In May, the group will be hosting 3-on-3 basketball games at Suncrest Middle School as well as a celebrity basketball game at Mountaineer Middle School, with players like Pat White, Noel Divine, and Owen Schmidt.
