Youth Sponsorship Program

All youth between the ages 8-18 can request a Youth Sponsor before, during or after their move to the Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) community.

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 Services and will match sponsors to new youths according to gender, age/grade, interests/hobbies, and school attending.

Why request a Youth Sponsor?
Moving to a completely new location is sometimes scary or exciting – but always new and different. It always helps when you have someone who can show you around and tell you about your school or activities, the community, places to see and shop, and introduce you to new friends.

The Youth Sponsorship Program can help your transition to a new place easier!

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.

Youth Centers are always looking for new teen sponsors. To participate, please contact the School Liaison Officer.
