The Navy Youth Sponsorship Program is a collaborative effort between the Youth Activities Center, the School Liaison Officer and the local school system. Relocating can be challenging for military youth, thus the program helps facilitate transition and orientation for transfer students. The program also provides support during deployments while promoting academic achievement and successful social and emotional adjustment at school and home.
