Hoosier Youth Challenge Academy

Indiana’s Hoosier Youth Challenge Academy, established in 2007, is located in Knightstown. The academy offers military-based training to unemployed/underemployed, crime-free and drug-free at-risk youth who have not graduated from high school 16-18 years of age. HYCA trains and mentors these youth to develop the values, skills, education and self-discipline to become successful young adults. The free program is a 17.5 month commitment, including an in-depth screening process, two-week acclimation phase, five-month residential phase and a yearlong post-residential mentorship phase to help graduates with career and life goal achievements.*
