Teen Council

The Indiana Military Teen Council is here to help. The Teen Council is an excellent leadership opportunity for military-connected teens across the state. The council meets quarterly and conducts conference calls during non-meeting months. The role of the council is to raise teen issues to the attention of military leaders, to receive leadership and resilience training and opportunities for growth beyond the usual high school experience, and to contribute to the well-being of military teens in the state. Each year, the council plans and executes a Teen Summit, which is a weekend event for all Indiana military teens.

Teen Summit Leadership Camp

Save the date! Our next Teen Summit Leadership Camp will take place at YMCA Camp Carson on October 27-29, 2023. Our camp is open to all Indiana Army National Guard and Gold Star children and youth age 12-18. Learn more and register below:
