Whether you are an individual or a large corporation, there are many ways you can help us give thousands of young men and women a second chance.
You can help us protect and grow the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program by becoming a corporate partner or asking your Congressional representative to join the Congressional Youth ChalleNGe Caucus.
Become a Corporate Partner
The National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program is the most cost-effective and successful program for turning around the lives of young individuals who have dropped out of school. NGYF is proud to support this evidence-based program in its mission to reverse the dropout trend.
Join us in the fight against the dropout crisis by becoming a Corporate Partner. There are many ways business can help the Foundation and youths in the ChalleNGe Program. Corporate Partners can help by contributing scholarships in the name of their business, establishing an endowment, or getting involved with the Workforce Development Program. Businesses can also join us as a partner to help us grow the program to serve more youth in need of a second chance.
Public-private partnerships like these will enable us to make an even greater impact on the dropout crisis. For more information on how to become a Corporate Partner, email us.
You can also see a list of our current partners on the Partners and Supporters page.
Join our Workforce Development Program
By creating an internship or job opportunity for a ChalleNGe graduate, your company can create an opportunity for the young man or woman to learn valuable job skills, gain confidence and begin their post-graduate life as a responsible citizen.
