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!

USO Diaper Division (ages 0-2) features special guest musical edutainers who interactively stimulate the mind and body of the littlest member of the military family. The program also creates loving connections between parents and their young children.

USO Discovery Kids (ages 3-10) provides cultural, recreational, and educational opportunities. Events highlight the excitement of STEAM and allows parents to get in on the action!

USO Teen/Tween (ages 11-18) provides social, recreational, STEAM, and team building challenges. These programs offer a great opportunity for teens and tweens to meet others who understand what life is like as a mil kid.

USO Illinois also hosts “combined” youth programs - fun for the entire family!
