Michigan Youth Challenge Academy hosting virtual orientations

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (November 12, 2020) – The Michigan Youth Challenge Academy, a free-of-cost, residential education program for teenagers struggling in school, is hosting virtual informational orientations for young adults and parents/guardians. Orientation is a mandatory step in the application process for those applying to enter the next cycle which starts January 17, 2021. Qualified candidates are between the ages of 16 and 18 and must voluntarily apply to the program, which applies the military model to alternative education.

The Michigan Youth Challenge Academy (MYCA) offers youth a chance to take control of their future by providing life skills, educational opportunities and job preparation. Cadets may earn a high school diploma, GED, or recover credits over the 22-week residential phase. They also engage in activities to develop leadership skills, teamwork, physical fitness, employment skills and civic responsibility. The MYCA is a program of the National Guard; however, there is no obligation to enter military service.

Attendees must RSVP by contacting recruiters Joan Miller at (517) 898-2856 or Frank Vasquez at (517) 256-6682. For more information, visit www.michigan.gov/myca.
