Build Leadership, Self-Esteem and Academic Skills.
The mission of the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program is to intervene in and reclaim the lives of 16-18 year old students at risk of dropping out. Graduates leave the program with the values, life skills, education, and self-discipline necessary to succeed as productive citizens.
Grizzly Youth Academy (GYA) is a partnership between the California National Guard and the Grizzly Challenge Charter School. For youth between the ages of 16 and 18 who have dropped out of high school, or are at-risk of dropping out, we offer a highly-structured environment that promotes leadership, cooperation, and academic skills, while building self-esteem, pride, and confidence
