Moving is a way of life for service members and their families. Resources like MilitaryINSTALLATIONS, Plan My Move and Military OneSource provide important information to help make moving easier. For many newcomers, a sponsor can help add that personal touch.
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. Primarily directed to preteen and teenaged youth, installation youth programs/centers provide information and materials on programs and services available at their new location. 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.

A sponsor will send you a sponsor package, answer your questions about the base and the area, make lodging/dorm arrangements for you and meet you upon arrival. Your sponsor will help you and your family until you are settled into the new community. A sponsor will be assigned to you by your gaining unit commander's support staff. Sponsorship is mandatory for all personnel below the grade of colonel. If you do not hear from a sponsor contact your gaining unit. Department of Defense civilians should contact their selecting official or personnel office for a sponsor. If you still do not receive a sponsor contact your Squadron First Sgt.
Each squadron is responsible for in-processing of personnel. They will schedule you for all your appointments. When you arrive at Pope the first thing to do is report to your squadron Commander Support Staff and sign into your squadron. The CSS and/or the military personnel flight will set up all your in-processing appointments. If you have any questions or concerns again contact your sponsor unit orderly room or the Customer Service Center Military Personnel Flight at 910-394-2276.
