More than 40,000 youths drop out of high school each year in Illinois and becomes part of an "at-risk" population. The Lincoln's Challenge Academy is a program that Challenge For Youth of Today supports. Who through a highly-structured environment, using a military model, improves coping skills and employability of these youth. Education is one of the core objectives with approximately 75 percent earning a GED. Graduates return to their communities and demostrate the success of the "second chance" that the Academy provided them. And the amazing part is that each of the over 11,000 graduates "VOLUNTEERED" to attend the Academy. They saw a means to make a change in their lives.
Please help the Challenge for Youth of Today help future applicants of the Academy see their dreams and goals come true. Support the Challenge for Youth of Today with your involvement and/or donation!
