Youth ChalleNGe Information Sessions

The Delaware National Guard announces INFO SESSIONS for the next Youth ChalleNGe class.

The National Guard’s Youth ChalleNGe program is for high school dropouts, those no longer attending, and 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 need discipline.

Program requirements are as follows:

  • Age: 16-18 years old
  • Legal: No violent or felony offenses and cannot currently have charges pending
  • Mental: No history of mental disorders
  • At-risk students: Students who dropped out or are in the process of dropping out of high school.

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

The start date for the next class is October 11, 2021. Interested candidates should apply by September 15, 2021.

Information session briefings will be conducted in the coming weeks (see attached flyer) for those who want to learn more about the program. If you are unable to attend an info session, contact Mrs. Hughes to schedule a private appointment.
