Change the world; influence a life one youth at a time!
The Youth ChalleNGe (YC) program provides a second-chance opportunity to Delaware at-risk youth. Now entering its 5th session partnered with the Capital Guardian Youth Challenge Academy, the DNG YC program has been able to successfully assist and graduate 44 Cadets. Our Cadets have moved on to pursue higher education, seek employment, and some have joined the military. Mentor/Mentee relationships are key to supporting the Cadet’s success.
