Nine area teens were among 147 Georgia youth who graduated from the Georgia National Guard’s Youth Challenge Academy at Fort Gordon on March 3:

Youth Challenge is a 22-week, residential youth program for teens aged 16-18 who have dropped out of school. The military-styled program provides teens with the opportunity to complete basic academic courses leading to a high school diploma or GED.
The voluntary program also provides teens valuable life skills training emphasizing academic, physical fitness and personal discipline.
The Georgia National Guard operates two Youth Challenge Academy campuses in Georgia, the original campus at Fort Stewart near Savannah, and a second campus at Fort Gordon near Augusta that opened in 2000.
This is the 13th graduating class for the Fort Gordon YCA.
