The WCCA is a two-phased voluntary program geared toward Wyoming’s 16-to-18 years old at-risk youth. The first phase is a 22-week or 5.5 month residential program followed by a 12-month post-residential or at home second phase. The Residential Phase of the program takes place in a safe, disciplined and motivational environment that promotes structure, teamwork, self-control and academics along with leadership, health, community service, life skills, job skills, physical fitness and citizenship.
The Post-Residential Phase takes place after graduation from the Residential Phase and is a time when the cadet uses the skills learned in the Residential
Phase through their placement in either a job, further education, or the military. The cadet is matched with a mentor during the Residential Phase and this
mentor helps guide the cadet during the 12-month post-residential period.
