The DE National Guard’s Youth ChalleNGe program is for high school dropouts, those no longer attending, or those failing in high school. The Youth ChalleNGe program is a highly structured military styled, non-traditional educational environment that integrates training, mentoring, tough love, and diverse educational and extracurricular activities. The Youth ChalleNGe Academy is a 17-1/2 month program that offers at-risk youth the opportunity to get a GED after a 22-week in resident program located in Laurel, MD. This
program is an excellent opportunity for students that cannot conform to a traditional learning environment and are willing to learn but needing discipline.

There is no cost for tuition, room, or meals.

Refer to flyer attached for program requirements and other details!
