EACH GRADUATED CADET RECEIVED A FREE EDUCATION WORTH $27,000.
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 Kentucky residents.
CHANGING LIVES ONE CHALLENGE AT A TIME.
The Bluegrass ChalleNGe Academy services students from around the Commonwealth of Kentucky and accepts applications year around.

Following the residential phase of the program, the students must complete the 12-month post-residential phase in order to successfully complete the Youth ChalleNGe Program.
