CHILDREN & YOUTH MONTH (April)

Apr 1, 2013

The American Legion has a strong dedication to supporting our nation’s youth. The organization was founded on the principle in 1919, when Children & Youth was declared one of the Legion’s four pillars. In the years since, a number of youth-oriented programs have been developed internally. Additionally, the Legion collaborates with outside organizations that focus on supporting young people.
