The purposes and principles of the American Legion Auxiliary’s Children & Youth program, in general, are the same as those of The American Legion.

The Children & Youth (C&Y) program emphasizes protecting, caring for, and supporting children and youth, particularly those of veterans’ and military families. Every American Legion Auxiliary unit should have a C&Y chairman. Larger units may want to select a C&Y Committee to work with the chairman. Under guidance of the unit president, the C&Y chairman should work within her community to protect, care for, and support children and youth. Auxiliary C&Y chairmen may want to work together with their American Legion post’s C&Y chairman on projects and events in the community.

Duties of the Unit Children & Youth Chairman

  • Make sure the pledge of care and protection for children of veterans is carried out through service work, or through direct cash assistance to needy families if necessary.

  • Provide leadership for the unit on all matters pertaining to children.

  • Cooperate with other responsible organizations and agencies of the community whose work is in the interest of children.

  • Submit mid-year and annual reports of C&Y activities and plans, to the membership of the unit, and to the district or department C&Y chairman.

This year, the Department is selling shirts as a special fundraiser for Camp Corral and Operation Military Support.
