The Michigan Youth Challenge Academy is a quasi-military 22-week residential program geared toward Michigan’s at-risk youth, ages 16-19, who have dropped out of school or are at risk of dropping out. The MYCA provides purpose and direction for the future of Michigan’s youth through education and structure.

The MYCA – YFC Partnership:
Each Sunday, Kalamazoo Youth for Christ and supporting volunteers hold a two-hour chapel service for over one hundred MYCA cadets. These high-energy services are quite often a cadet’s first time experiencing the power of God’s love.
While incorporating guest speakers and one-on-one counseling/praying, these kids open their damaged hearts to the Lord so that He may heal their wounds and bless their lives.
We join the KERYX group and volunteers from across the state to hold a three-day retreat weekend for the cadets in Battle Creek. This weekend is a life changing event for the cadets.
