MOFFETT FEDERAL AIRFIELD, Calif --
The Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard has received funding for three AFR/ANG Teen Leadership Summits. You can support the program by reading the qualifications for teens to participate and register your teens to attend. Also, each camp needs adult leaders to chaperone the teens. These camps were a tremendous success last year and we hope that ANG participation is even greater this year!
The AFR/ANG Teen Leadership Summits are open to all 14-18 year old dependent teens of current Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard members.
Applicants will be required to complete the 2010 AFR/ANG Teen Leadership Summit application for the session they wish to attend to include essay questions, Code of Conduct and transportation form.
The application deadline is April 16. Applications and instructions as well as applications for adult volunteers are located at www.georgia4h.org/AFRANGTeenSummit
