Frequently Asked Questions

  • Campus Life Military is the name of our program and is probably what you are most familiar with! Having a unified brand name helps parents and students quickly find us and get re-connected after PCSing to a new location. Consistent branding and programming also help chaplains, school administrators, parents, and other potential partners know what they are getting when they connect with different Campus Life Military programs. YFC Military is the name of our Chapter. Because we have experience in military youth ministry, we help advise and train Campus Life Military staff at other YFC Chapters that minister to youth at nearby military installations that would otherwise have to learn on their own! YFC Military also directly oversees Campus Life Military sites OCONUS, and at military installations that are not located near existing YFC Chapters.

  • While we won’t turn anyone away, Campus Life Military is designed for 11-19 year old military-connected youth. Whether your service member is active duty, Guard, Reserve, retired, DoD civilian, or contractor, we’re here to support your student. ID cards may be required to access events held on the installation. If you’re unsure if your student can attend, feel free to reach out to the Ministry Site Director found on our Locations page.
