Academy Location

The Idaho Youth ChalleNGe Academy will serve all 16-18 year old high-school dropouts within the state of Idaho.

Cadets will spend 5-½ months in Pierce, Idaho during the Residential Phase of the program, followed by a 12-month Post-Residential and Mentoring Phase which pairs the youth with a trained and respected member of their home community.
