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 Campus Update (June 25, 2020)
Since our campuses closed in March due to COVID-19, the staff at all the campuses have been extremely busy preparing for the eventual return of young people to their respective locations. This planning included the creation of a new daily standard operation procedures(SOP) guide that was developed using protocols and other guidelines that were developed based on the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Department of Public Health, and additional guidance from other education and health related organizations.
These new guidelines established social distancing in all campus facilities such as cadet barracks, classrooms, dining facilities and other locations where cadet engage in the activities of the campus.
Unfortunately, these protocols will allow only a certain number of cadets on each campus, which is much less than the typical class size. So, we highly recommend that if you are not truly committed to completing this program, you should allow us to bring young people to campus who want to make a change in their lives.
We will continue to monitor the process and once we receive confirmation from all appropriate agencies that our reopeoning plans are approved, we will begin the process of bringing cadets back to campus.
