A sponsor is assigned by a newcomer's gaining unit and helps the newcomer before, during and after a move. If you haven't been assigned a sponsor, you can request one through your new unit. Units try to match sponsors and service members by rank and family status.

Sponsorship is also available for youth. Installation youth sponsorship programs help military-connected youth make a successful transition to a new community.

Where available, youth can exchange emails, talk on the phone or chat online with other youth. The youth program staff at your new installation can offer more information on installation youth sponsorship programs.
You can also contact your installation School Liaison Program office for information about school-based youth sponsorship programs such as Anchored4Life and Student2Student. These peer-to-peer programs help your student adjust to and navigate their new school.
If your child would like to become a youth sponsor, contact your installation School Liaison Program or youth program/center.
Families with children may also want to visit Military Kids Connect, an online community for military children and youth. The site offers games, videos and links to teen-led installation tours.
