Children and Youth
Children and Youth- Our future
The Children & Youth program emphasizes protecting, caring for, and supporting children and youth, particularly those of veterans’ and military families.
To recognize and reward the positive actions of our children and youth, the American Legion Auxiliary has two special national awards bestowed to youth nominated by units: the Youth Hero Award and the Good Deed Award.
Kids of Deployed are Heroes 2 (KDH2) is an initiative honoring military children who may be experiencing a separation from one or both parents, whether deployed to a war zone, having a short tour or on an extended temporary duty assignment.
Unit 62 has a vibrant junior program led by our volunteers. Each month, the juniors meet to learn more about the Auxiliary and do fun things together. At holiday or events, our juniors are actively participating.
