The Department of Defense has a long history of providing positive youth programs that focus on alternative activities for youth during out-of-school hours. Today, DoD continues to be committed to youth by providing consistent guidance and stable and dynamic programs in more than 350 youth programs joint-service, worldwide. DoD promotes positive youth development by designing programs to recognize the achievements of youth and by developing partnerships with other youth-serving organizations like the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and 4-H, Cumberland County, 910-425-3852, that offer a variety of resources.
Programs for teens and pre-teens vary from one base to another, but are governed by a consistent DoD instruction. Programs prepare young people to meet the challenges of adolescence and adulthood through a coordinated, progressive series of activities and experiences that help them become socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively competent. Programs usually include physical fitness and sports, arts and recreation, training in leadership, life skills and career/volunteer opportunities, mentoring, intervention and support services.

A child and youth membership card (renewed annually) is required for use of the center and participation in recreational, instructional and sports programs. Program information can be obtained by calling the Child and Youth Registration Office at 910-396-1278. Our programs are designed to attract teens by presenting them with the challenge of going beyond program attendance and participation. The teens are encouraged to obtain ownership of programs. Through participating in teen programs the youth can create opportunities to discover new dimensions in their communities and within themselves.
