      The American Legion has a strong dedication to supporting our nation’s youth. 

       The organization was founded on the principle in 1919, when Children & Youth

      was declared one of the Legion’s four pillars. In the years since, a number of

      youth-oriented programs have been developed internally. Additionally, the

 Legion collaborates with outside organizations that focus on supporting young people.
