(1/27/10) -- The Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard has received funding for three AFR/ANG Teen Leadership Summits this year. Guard members can support the program by registering their teens for a summit. Also, each camp needs adult leaders to chaperone the teens.
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.
