Recruitment #18-005388-0002

Introduction

The Maryland Freestate ChalleNGe Academy is one of the 10 original states to begin a ChalleNGe Program.  It is endorsed by the State of Maryland and is in a cooperative agreement between The Maryland National Guard and the National Guard Bureau.  The academy is located on Aberdeen Proving Ground in Harford County, MD.  The Academy is a tuition-free program which offers at-risk adolescents 16 to 18 years old and opportunity to change their future for the better by providing the skills, education and self-discipline needed to become responsible, productive citizens.  The initial program consists of a 22-week residential phase.  During this phase the cadets learn self-discipline, leadership and responsibility. Participants live and work in a controlled military environment, encouraging teamwork and personal growth. A 12-month post-residential phase focuses on helping enroll graduates in continued education, technical school programs or entry-level employment. During the post-residential phase, students are assisted by at least one trained mentor from the community for further development.
