 Child & Youth

The Child and Youth Program of the Louisiana National Guard is the voice of all military youth. The program is designed to offer advocacy and education for the children of military members.

In this current time of war, the program can be considered a safety net for our youth. It is a source of education about deployment and reunion, allowing our youth to better understand how to cope with these unique challenges. More importantly, the program is a system of support for youth in the time between deployment and reunions.

The Child and Youth Program is also the perfect chance to participate in leadership opportunities and form lasting connections at our annual events, which include:

Kids AT and Youth Leadership Summer Camps

Christmas Toy Drive
