Youth Sponsorship

The CYP Youth Sponsorship Program is designed to provide transition support to military children via introduction, program insight, club involvement, and community awareness. Inbound students are able to connect and become familiar with the base’s youth program offerings, make connections with local student Youth Sponsorship Representatives, and to gain insight into the programs they will be involved in once they arrive at the base.

Spanish Schools

You may decide to attend Spanish schools. You must have a rental agreement or assigned base housing before you can apply. Registration is in May every year. The SLO hosts a workshop with the Education Delegates in Puerto and Rota every March to walk you through the process. Any time after May, school options are space available and there is an alternative registration process. Every August the Education Delegates and I host a workshop on how to register and what to expect in the Spanish School system. Appointments can be made with the SLO anytime to walk you through the registration and inform you about this education option. For more information, please visit:
