The National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program was established by Congress in 1993 to turn around the lives of young men and women between the ages of 16 and 18 who are experiencing difficulty in completing traditional high school. This is a free program open to Georgia residents.
Georgia Youth ChalleNGe Program UPDATE (July 7, 2021)
Applications for our new September Class at our Fort Gordon campus are being accepted now!
Initial preparations for the Fort Gordon campus renovations have begun and require us to move the Intake Day for Class #42 to Monday, September 13, 2021.
All applicants who were selected for the July class at Fort Gordon have been transferred to Fort Stewart so they can begin our program when expected. All applications received after Sunday, June 20, 2021 will be reviewed for selection at the Fort Gordon campus.
We are expecting to bring in a larger number of candidates in September as we look for our capacity to be expanded for our residential program as the COVID-19 capacity limitations are lifted.
The Georgia Youth ChalleNGe Program is the program that provides students looking for a pathway toward earning those academic credits that were lost during the pandemic. We are prepared to help you move forward to get back to your correct academic alignment so you can graduate from high school or earn that academic credential you need to begin your future in a positive direction.
