The time has come for yet another move and you’re on your way to Fort Huachuca, Arizona. If you would like to have a student sponsor, we will match you with a student who has similar interests and can help make your transition a smoother one. The forms and agreement are available to download and return at your convenience. They can also be emailed to the address provided above.
Note to Parents:
Youth Sponsorship plays a very important role in the moving process. Many questions and concerns are expressed when Families move. For youth, the fear of the unknown is a very real concern. Here are a few examples:
How will I make new friends?
What will my new school be like?
What actives/sports are available?
Will I fit in?
What are the other kids wearing? A Youth Sponsor will help provide the answer to these and many other questions. A Youth Sponsor’s job is to help decrease the new student’s anxiety. The most important part of being a Youth Sponsor is to be a friend and make the new student feel welcome at Fort Huachuca. A Youth Sponsor will be able to introduce the newcomer to other students at school and at the Youth Center. Local Youth Sponsorship

Adopt-A-School (AAS) Program The Fort Huachuca Adopt-A-School (AAS) Program is a Partner’s in Education (PIE) Program among Fort Huachuca, the Fort Huachuca Accommodation Schools, and the Sierra Vista Public Schools (SVPS). The AAS Program is designed to encourage and increase support of the local schools through this active volunteer effort. Click here for the AAS document. Click here for the AAS document.
Schools: Each school must have an identified AAS Point of Contact (POC). Teachers will complete and submit Wish List Forms of identified needs to the respective school’s POC. The POC will submit completed Wish List Forms to the Fort Huachuca School Liaison Officer. The Wish List Form can be obtained from the School Liaison website (http://www.mwrhuachuca.com/schoolliaison.html) or by contacting the SLO. The SLO will compile and maintain a list of requested volunteer activities and will provide the list to interested Unit POCs and Soldiers.
Each Unit must identify an AAS POC. Soldiers can volunteer in the following three ways:
(1) Units can adopt a specific school and complete volunteer activities within that school on a regular basis.
(2) Units can select items from the Wish List Form (for one or multiple schools) that fit the Unit’s mission time requirements. (3) Individual Soldiers can select items from a school’s Wish Lists for volunteer activities. (Individual Soldiers must obtain approval from their Commanders prior to using duty time.) Volunteer hours will be reported to the Unit POC, who will complete the Unit Log Sheet and forward it to the SLO by the 5th working day of the month for the previous month.
