Youth and families involved in Community Counseling's NFusion Program will host a talent show April 26 at the Starkville Sportsplex to raise funds to support their activities.  


Auditions will take place in Starkville April 15-17 and April 19 from 3-6 p.m. at 220 B Jackson Ave. Auditions in Louisville will be April 8-12 from 3-6 p.m. at 190 W.

What is NFusion? 


NFusion is an initiative aimed at linking youth and young adults in Starkville and Louisville with resources in their communities to help them navigate life's many transitions. The program offers mental health services, living skills, educational support, cultural enrichment, employment skills and countless life-enriching lessons. All of these are made possible through partnerships with families and community members.  


NFusion serves adolescents ages of 14-21 on a referral basis. Services are provided in the most stigma-free environment possible, as stigma associated with transition-aged youth is a determining factor in their not seeking services. 


The talent show April 26 is from 6-8 p.m. at the Starkville Sportsplex, 405 Lynn Lane. General admission is $5. Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place winners. For more information, call 662-773-2600.
