Arrivals / Departures

Wouldn’t it be exciting if you could connect to someone who already lives where you’re moving to so you could ask them the millions of questions you have?  That’s what our Youth Sponsorship Program is designed to do! The program helps you connect with another youth or teen who already lives at your new location and knows how to make your move easier.  He or she can answer any questions you might have. You’ll know a familiar face even before you arrive. This can make meeting other people much easier

Before you move, you’ll get paired up with another youth or teen your age (your “sponsor”)

Questions?  You must be curious to find out about living in your new home.  Don’t worry, your sponsor can help.  Ask things about your school, youth programs and activities, local customs, and anything else that’s on your mind.

Get a tour.  Ask your sponsor to take you around the base or around the school.  Through the wonders of technology, your sponsor might be able to give you a virtual tour before you arrive.

Get started! The first step to a successful youth sponsorship is connecting with a sponsor.  Whether moving to England or from England, fill out the Sponsorship Form below

Exchange emails, talk on the phone or chat online.  It’s that simple!
