The American Legion Auxiliary believes education is vital to democracy and that investing time and money to educate our youth is literally an investment in America’s future. Our Education program fosters learning for children in our own communities, with our main focus on the children of our military and veterans.

Educating our communities about the sacrifices of our military men and women is another goal of the Auxiliary. One way to do this is to bring local veterans into the classroom to speak to the students about their experience. Other initiatives include collaborating with Family Readiness Groups, known as FRGs, to assist with special projects for the schools on military bases, and conducting local projects such as, donation school supplies to children in need.

Our purpose is to promote quality education for children and adults through classroom activities, literacy programs, scholarship promotion, and support of children beyond high school, especially for military children.
