I've heard mixed reviews on this program for 'at risk youth' and wondered if anyone had any constructive information [good or bad].

My son is a current cadet at mountaineer challenge. It's a REALLY good program! I can't say enough about it, and the staff, they are AWESOME. If you know someone that would benefit, it's DEFINITELY worth it! You'd be amazed at the change in the children in just 22 weeks. If you have the time, attend the graduation ceremony coming up on june 17th, it's at 1pm, at Craig civic Center. You can see what the cadets become upon graduation. I'm really happy my son went, and am VERY PROUD!! I would recommend this program to anyone considering it.

It used to be a good program when General Tackett oversaw it, but now it's nothing more than a system to create state revenue. Kids are "graduating" with a high school diploma being no more ready for society than when they started. It used to be a program where a class might start with a 100 kids and maybe twenty graduating because they were the only ones making an effort to better themselves, but now, sincere effort is no longer required, just stick it out, do the minimum and you'll get the same reward as the teen who gave it all they had. I would not recommend this program to anyone. The state needs to rebuild the program and take it back to what it was created for, a program to help the child become an asset to society, not a statistic for the state.
