VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Cheryl Tan learned about a military-style program that helps turn the lives of troubled teenagers around. She found out how life-changing the program is when she spoke with cadets at the Virginia National Guard Commonwealth ChalleNGe Youth Academy in this edition of "What's Your Problem?"
The Commonwealth ChalleNGe Youth Academy is based at Camp Pendleton in Virginia Beach. It is open to qualified 16 to 18-year-old Virginia residents who are at risk of dropping out of high school. You can stop by for tours and talk with former cadets about the free program.
The program is now taking applications for the next session that starts in July.
