Youth

Future leaders, educators, white color, blue color.  Whatever a young person defines as his or her future, they will be making the decisions for our country and the world.  We must provide the corner stones for them now.  Working alongside America’s youth and instilling a sense of patriotism has always been — and will always be — a VFW priority.

We must always realize that our youth are the leaders of tomorrow and their teachers are the motivation. We offer a number of scholarships to honor both our future generation and their teachers.  We also provide classroom visits to explain what a veteran is, the meaning of patriotism and a number of requested topics.

Each year the VFW recognizes three exceptional teachers – one each from the elementary, junior high and high school levels – for their outstanding commitment to teach Americanism and instill patriotism in their students.
