SURVICE Engineering helped plan and execute the 1st Annual Freestate Challenge Golf Tournament this past May at Ruggles Golf Course, APG, MD, to raise funds for designing and building a state-of-the art computer laboratory for Freestate ChalleNGe Academy cadets.  This laboratory will add vocational training program options to students and better prepare them for potential employment opportunities in a digital world.

The Freestate ChalleNGe Academy is a tuition-free program which offers at-risk adolescents 16 to 18 years old an opportunity to change their future for the better by providing the skills, education, and self-discipline needed to become responsible, productive citizens. The initial program consists of a 22-week residential phase. During this phase, the cadets learn self-discipline, leadership, and responsibility. Participants live and work in a controlled military environment, encouraging teamwork and personal growth. A 12-month, post-residential phase focuses on helping enroll graduates in continued education, technical school programs, or entry-level employment. During the post-residential phase, a trained mentor from the community assists in the student's development.

SURVICE designed a customer logo and provided graphics for marketing materials and sponsor signage for the tournament.  The event was a success, raising $5,000 for the new computer lab!
