USO Discovery Kids

Military children learn to cope with very adult-level issues, including the stresses of separation and anxiety over the potential loss of a deployed parent or caregiver, challenges of family reintegration with loved ones who have returned home from combat, record-high divorce rates, and unemployment. USO Discovery Kids offers free, recreational and cultural programs and events to military youth aged 3-10 years old that are fun, educational and are designed to help alleviate stress, enhance exposure to learning and cultural activities and build bonds within military families.

The USO Illinois works with like-minded organizations and partners to create experiences that inspire, educate, entertain, dazzle and delight children of all ages. Our Discovery Kids offerings can include the building of terrariums at the Chicago Botanic Garden, backstage tours and actor meet and greets at local theaters, day trips to museums or local zoos, and much, much more!
