DREAM.

BELIEVE.

ACHIEVE.

Excellence, No Excuses!

The Mission of the New Jersey Youth ChalleNGe Academy is to train and mentor disengaged teenage youth so they become responsible and productive citizens of their community, state, and country. We will do so by providing unique transformational experiences through a highly disciplined 22-week residential program that integrates a quasi-military training environment, innovative academic offerings, and opportunities to further develop their physical, social, and intellectual abilities. In partnership with a mentor, they will receive continued guidance and support during their one-year post residential phase immediately following graduation.

You can ask for help from professional essay writers to successfully pass student papers. Students in Canada can use PaperLeaf services as a custom essay writing assistance. University homework can be very difficult. Such services help students get the job done as best as possible.NG

Voices of ChalleNGe

My son graduated from class 49! He came home a changed person. I am so happy that I took the leap of faith and put him in the hands of the NJ Youth ChalleNGe Academy staff! Thank you to every single staff member!

This is a great program for at risk teens. This program will strive to redirect, uplift and add confidence to those that need it. My son just graduated and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made!!!
