Malmstrom Child & Youth Programs MISSION STATEMENT

To assist DoD military and civilian personnel in balancing the competing demands of the accomplishment of the DoD mission and family life
by managing and delivering a system of quality, available, and affordable programs and services
for eligible children and youth birth through
18 years of age.


Membership

Youth, ages 6 to 18, are eligible to purchase an annual membership. The annual fee is $40 per child and is reduced quarterly. All memberships expire annually on September 30.

As per AFI 34-144, participation in youth programs is limited to youth up to 18 years old. Children 5 years and under are allowed to participate only in those activities organized specifically for their group. Family members of active duty, retired military, DoD and NAF civilian personnel are allowed to participate in programs and activities. Children 6 to 8 years old must be accompanied by a parent or sibling over 16 years old unless they are participating in an organized, supervised activity.

Parents must complete an AF Form 88, Youth Programs Application, and provide a current immunization record (including the annual influenza vaccine) whether their child is participating as a member or non-member.
