USO Military Youth Programs, which serves children ages 0-18 in three age-appropriate categories, offers opportunities that are designed to help alleviate stress, enhance exposure to learning and cultural activities, and build bonds within military families. These opportunities are hosted virtually, in the community and at our USO Illinois centers!
