Air Force Reserve/
Air National Guard Teen Leadership Summits


The Air Force Reserve/Air National Guard Teen Leadership Summit is a week-long camp for 14-18 year old dependent teens of current or retiree Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard military members. Teens will focus on leadership development and self-confidence, learn about programs and services available to AF dependents, and build an appreciation for and sense of belonging to the AF community. They will be given a voice to inform AF senior leadership of their top issues as AF dependents.

At both Summits, leadership classes will be taught throughout the week and teens will learn about the mission of the AFR and ANG. Summits also include military traditions, community service projects, musical performances, and environmental education classes.
