April is Children & Youth Month

>>>from the National Organization

Knowledge is power. A core element of the Auxiliary’s mission, caring for our children and youth, is sharply focused on educating adults about the needs of our young people. We believe that the more people know and understand about the needs of the children in their communities, the more interest they will have in learning how they can help meet those needs.

During Children & Youth Month in April, The American Legion Family emphasizes its commitment to our nation’s children. Learn how you and your Auxiliary unit can support and promote the month officially dedicated to youth. Download American Legion Family C&Y Brochure |Download American Legion Auxiliary C&Y Plan of Action
