Rawlins, WY (AP) - The goal of the Wyoming National Guard's Cowboy Challenge Academy is to transform at-risk teenagers.

For each cadet class attending the academy the goal is to come out the other side of training with the values, life skills, education, and employment potential to be responsible and productive Wyoming citizens.

The academy seeks to give the cadets a quality education that instills cowboy ethics to give them hope and opportunity for a better future.

Core components of the voluntary program include academics, citizenship, life-coping and employment skills, civic service, leadership and physical fitness.

Region One Recruiter Charley Stoneking tells the Rawlins Daily Times that the program tries to give cadets skills that they can use in their lives.
