133 cadets graduated from the Oregon National Guard Youth Challenge program this week.

 

Spokesman Frank Strupish says these kids were taken out of a troubling situation and places in an intense program to give them tools to succeed.  "These kids have gone through 22 weeks of a residential program. It's a military modeled school,  that provides a lot of discipline and structure for these kids. They're earned anywhere between 8-10 high school credits apiece, to help them get back on track to graduate school. And so they've finished the first phase of our program, the residential phase, and they're fixing to embark on the second phase of the program, which is the mentor phase."

 

Strupish says in the mentoring phase the kids have chosen mentors that will stay in contact with them for the next 12 months as they work towards their goals.

 

Strupish says their program has a high success rate; statistics show that after graduation 80% of the students are still doing something meaningful in the community.
