Public Service Announcement
The ChalleNGe program works for those young men and women who have struggled and failed to succeed in the traditional school system. Analyses by both MDRC and the RAND Corporation prove the program yields successful results for its participants and is cost-effective for its funders, with a return of $2.66 for every dollar spent.
The National Guard Youth Foundation supports the ChalleNGe program and is also working to make sure ChalleNGe graduates continue to have support and opportunities well beyond their graduation day, with scholarships, internships, workforce transition assistance and continued mentoring.
I hope you will consider playing our thirty-second public service announcement to help us heighten awareness for ChalleNGe.
