Youth Sponsorship Program

Military youth face unique challenges that build character and leadership.  Although military children are resilient, moving to a new place can be hard. 

On average, military children move six to nine times before they graduate from high school. Moving means learning about a new culture, meeting new friends, and attending a new school.

Youth Sponsorship links inbound youth to a local military youth to ease their transition to Okinawa.

Your school liaison officer (SLO) can connect your child to a youth sponsorship program or welcome committee at his or her local youth or teen center or school. Such programs can assist in arranging a tour for your child or answering questions about local youth services your child may have (i.e. Youth Sports). For more information, contact your SLO.
