The Milledgeville Youth ChalleNGe Academy


The Milledgeville Youth Challenge Academy (MVYCA) opened in October 2016 and is the newest of Georgia’s three program sites. Located in the geographic center of the state, MVYCA offers at-risk youth from all over Georgia an opportunity to choose to succeed.

Passionate and dedicated staff actively work to support cadets in their growth and pursuit of their personal goals. MVYCA’s staff members offer a wide spectrum of expertise including retired/active military personnel, food service, and medical staff to support the needs of our cadets.

Since its establishment, Milledgeville Youth Challenge Academy has built a strong foundation of partnerships in the local area. Local partners include: Georgia War Veterans Home, Comfort Farms, Chard Wray Food Pantry, and Georgia Military College. In order to provide a holistic approach to cadet development, MVYCA offers opportunities beyond the mandated requirements including ServSafe Food Handler Certificate Training, Interpersonal Relationship Development, and Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program.
