     Arkansas National Guard Youth ChalleNGe 

    The Arkansas National Guard adds value to communities across the state by administering the Youth ChalleNGe program to reshape the future of at-risk youth. 

    Youth ChalleNGe is a voluntary program open to males and females ages 16 – 18 years old. 

    These at risk youths receive the structure and educational development needed to get on a better course for their life. 

    The Arkansas Legislature and the Arkansas Department of Education have recognized the impact the YCP imparts to our youth. As of September of 2015 school districts across the state may give credits towards core subjects or electives to graduates of the YCP.
