“Trip challenge” is unique, no other state or territory has done something like this. This trip was possible thanks to the funding of the Puerto Rico National Guard Youth Programs Corporation. Since no federal or state funds are used for an event like this, the Corporation raises funds through several activities with the Guard to help the kids of ChalleNGe. The Puerto Rico National Guard’s Youth ChalleNGe Academy found an innovative way to reward those who left school but found an opportunity in challenge to move ahead in life as an exceptional citizen.
