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.
To help prepare sponsors for success, the Sponsorship Program provides training and access to important information and resources that can help newcomers master their move. The Sponsorship Program helps sponsors fulfill their responsibilities, which may include:

For more information on the Sponsorship Program, contact your installation Military and Family Support Center.
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.
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.
Everyone coming to Garmisch and Oberammergau is assigned a sponsor. The intent is to contact individuals prior to arrival, arrange pickup from the airport, assist with in-processing and ensure assignment of living accommodations. If you are on assignment and have not been contacted by your sponsor, contact your gaining organization or Army Community Service (ACS) as soon as possible.
You can reach ACS at 011-49-8821-750-3572 or DSN 314-440-3572. It is very important to be in contact with your sponsor early especially if you have school-age children or pets. Your sponsor can also arrange for a post office box, with a copy of your orders, to allow for advanced mailing of needed items.
Youth Sponsorship – Child and youth services also has a sponsorship program. Sign up for the youth sponsorship program and be paired with a Garmisch youth sponsor of the same age and interests. Your sponsor can tell you what's going on, where the fun is and what to expect when you arrive.
If you are interested in the youth sponsorship program, contact +49-8821-750-2266 or DSN 314-440-2266 / +49-8821-750-2684 or DSN 314-440-2684.
