The National Guard realizes that Guard Youth face
a unique set of challenges and problems. The National Guard Youth Program is
available to help provide the support and resources they need to help deal with
separation from a parent, child care issues, difficulties with school, or any
other problems. Children of all ages can be affected at any phase of military
life; we have programs to help one and all.
