Jersey Proud: New Jersey Youth Challenge Academy Class 56 celebrates graduation
The New Jersey Youth Challenge Academy on Tuesday celebrated its Class 56.
The graduation ceremony honored the latest group of the residential National Guard program which tries to straighten out kids headed the wrong way.
The program takes 16 to 18-year-olds who've had some trouble and given a non-stop dose of military life for four months. The kids learn about responsibility, teamwork and discipline.
Class 57 of the program begins on Wednesday.
