Janet Kays, Chairman

I am Janet Kays, and this is my second year as your Youth Activities Chairman.  I was very pleased and impressed with the creative ways that many auxiliaries encouraged youth to get involved with projects that involved veterans last year.  I am looking forward to another great year and hearing about lots of new and fun projects.  The Youth Activities program will include many of the same goals that have always been expected of our auxiliaries.

  1. To sponsor and/or work with a youth group in your community.

  2. To recognize and honor youth groups or individual youth who participate in service projects which aid veterans and active military.

  3. To reward young individuals for Random Acts of Patriotism with coins or cards.

  4. (New this year), we have another opportunity to work with our local youth. Each auxiliary is encouraged to develop a (Patriotic) contest for grades K-5.

As you work on your goals this year, consider getting reported in all of your programs at once by hosting a Family Freedom Festival.  You can promote the Youth Activities Program at your festival by giving out R.A.P coins or cards, distributing flag etiquette information, or sponsoring a patriotic contest for children attending the festival.  Included again in the program this year, you will find a box to help you with ideas on how to get reported.  Report each project as it is completed and get reported as soon as possible.  And don’t hesitate to contact me if you need help or have questions.  Have a great year!
