Youth Sponsorship

Getting ready for another move and want to find out about your new community? Why not let one of our youth sponsors help you.

Fort Bliss youth sponsors can answer questions about your new school, academic requirements, what to do, where to go, what to wear, find activities and clubs that interest you, and many other things.

Just fill out the Youth Sponsorship Form (PDF) and we'll match you up with another student with similar interests and hobbies.
