Youth Sponsorship - NS Mayport
The Navy Youth Sponsorship Program is a collaborative effort between the Youth and Teen Centers, 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.
Our quarterly Youth Sponsorship Events are held March, June, September, and December to encourage new teens to connect with fellow youth at their new duty station. Teens interested in becoming a youth sponsor can attend our monthly Youth Sponsorship Council Meetings, held on early release Wednesdays. Contact the Teen Center at (904) 246-0347 or the School Liaison Officer at 904-270-6289 x 1305 for more information.
