Make a Difference in a Young Person’s Life
As a community leader, you can support the U.S. Army by sharing information you have learned about the benefits of service. In the Army Advocates program, educators, business managers and leaders come together to spread the word about how Army service can make a difference in a young person’s life.
In this section, we’ll tell you about the Army Advocates program and how you can get involved.
The Army Advocates program is a chance for you to make a difference in a young person’s life by making your voice heard. The Army of the future needs daring, adaptable and innovative people to solve tough problems. As a result, the Army needs allies who can advocate for Army service.
