Project ChalleNGe

Air rushing through the Hush House baffles gave Project ChalleNGe corpsmembers a feel for the power of an F-16 fighter jet engine during an engine test here, May 16. The 162nd Fighter Wing showed 68 Project ChalleNGe corpsmembers a day-in-the-life of an F-16 training wing while reinforcing the program’s objective to inspire and motivate young high school dropouts to return to education, set goals and accomplish them. Through this 21-week program the Arizona National Guard provides a challenging military-based educational program in residence for teenagers who desire to succeed. The program produces functional members of the community with a success rate of 85 percent; measured by the number of youth who return to school or are placed in a career after graduation.
