Anchored4Life ClubDid you know that military children relocate every 1-4 years, three times more often than their civilian peers? The Anchored4Life Club is designed to provide military children with transition and resiliency life skills. This helps build positive connections, reinforces team building, and provides opportunities to support transitioning youth by giving kits and co-leading location tours and activity groups.
