Become a Youth Sponsor!
We know children can be just as eager to find out more about their new location before they PCS. But, did you know that all youth between 5-18 can request a youth sponsor before, during, or after a move? A youth sponsor can provide you with information about schools, shopping, and culture or maybe become your new friend! Youth Sponsorship is coordinated by the Youth Program and will match sponsors to new youth according to gender, age/grade, interests/hobbies and school attending.
Why request a Youth Sponsor?
Moving to a completely new location is sometimes scary, exciting but always new and different. It always helps when you have someone that can show you around and tell you about your school or program, the community, and places to see and shop, and introduce you to new friends. The Youth Sponsorship Program can help your transition to a new place easier no matter if it is a school, sports or Family Child Care home.
Why become a Youth Sponsor?
Everyone is encouraged to become a youth sponsor. If you like to help and meet new friends, then being a Sponsor is the right thing to do. As a Youth Sponsor, you get to identify, meet and help incoming teens and youth. You provide them with friendship, a warm welcome, information, and possibly a tour of the community/program.
This is a great leadership role, and the time spent volunteering as a youth sponsor will be added to your time as a youth volunteer on the post or at school.
Call the Youth Center at 316-759-4070 to talk to us. We run training every first Wednesday of the month, and participants can win a prize in our monthly drawing. We will put you in touch with a McConnell youth. Learn about McConnell and the surrounding area and make a new friend at the same time! Please register for training sessions the Monday before the session.
- Our planned programs focus on 9-18, unless otherwise specified.
- Youth using the facility must be members of the Youth Center with a current AF 88 on file. To become a member, call 759-4070 or come by the facility.
