Accolades

2022 Youth of the Year

Minot AFB Teen Program was selected to become a 2018 Military Teen Ambassador. Our group of teens spent 10 days in Atlanta Georgia learning about how to help military youth become more resilient, and how to help families reintegrate when their deployed loved one returns home. This experience culminated in the Boys and Girls Club’s National Keystone Conference where the teens learned how to ignite change in our local community.
