ChalleNGe Champions Recognition Event
Every year, the National Guard Youth Foundation pays tribute to the National Guard and its extraordinary efforts to counter the high school dropout rate through the Youth ChalleNGe Program. The National Guard Youth Foundation hosts the annual ChalleNGe Champions event, to feature the members of the ChalleNGe community who make the program work so well. That includes members of Congress, Governors, senior National Guard and military members, corporate and community leaders, ChalleNGe staff, cadets and graduates. The event is dedicated to raising awareness of the dropout crisis and helping America’s youth get a second chance at a productive and successful life.
