About the Foundation
The National Guard Youth Foundation (NGYF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization formed to support the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program.
The Foundation addresses the growing dropout crisis and its impact on our nation’s youth, economy and national security. We assist adolescents who drop out of school with the opportunity to improve their life skills, education and employability, creating the next generation skilled workforce in America. Our efforts are directed primarily toward developing, supporting and enhancing the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program.
Any student within the 50 states and U.S. protectorates who drops out of school and commits to pursuing a second chance, can have the opportunity to attend college, compete for quality employment and become self-sustaining and contributing citizens through their participation in the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program.
The Foundation works to raise awareness of the growing dropout crisis in the nation and its impact on our economy and national security. Through local and national events, panel briefs and PSAs, the Foundation is striving to make the public aware of the dropout epidemic and what the ChalleNGe Program is doing to combat the issue.
