About YCP

Reclaiming the futures of youths

The Louisiana National Guard Youth Challenge Program (YCP) is an alternative educational program that offers adolescents an opportunity to change their futures.  Students looking for a way to succeed outside of a traditional school setting learn self-discipline, leadership, and responsibility while working to obtain a high school equivalency diploma.
