National Guard Youth Programs

The purpose of the National Guard Bureau Family Program (NGB-FP) Youth Program is to assist states and territories in developing and managing programs that meet the needs and interests of today’s Guard youth.

The Youth Program has the following goals:

  • Establish baseline standards, reduce disparities in the delivery of services, and establish avenues for networking across state and territorial boundaries.
  • Foster partnerships between state and national youth organizations and those of the National Guard.
  • Establish and develop effective youth sponsorship and mentoring programs at the local and national levels.
  • Develop methods of providing commercial sponsorship to the states and territories for common core programs.
