We offer two classes per year, in January and July. Our program provides a wealth of educational enrichment offered by the staff and facilities with the SC National Guard’s commitment to serving the SC’s at-risk youth.
The South Carolina National Guard wants to challenge you with a second opportunity for success. The Youth Challenge Academy is designed to help youth acquire the basic skills and education necessary to succeed in life.
For the Youth Challenge program, mentoring is a supportive one-to-one relationship between an adult and an at-risk youth developed to facilitate the youth’s educational, social and personal growth.
I wasn’t really a bad person, but I needed to make a change. I think I really achieved making that change by coming here.
