Child, Youth, and School Services

How can CYS assist my Family during an IET assignment?

Child, Youth & School Services recognizes the challenges of our Soldiers and their Families in an IET environment. CYS offers quality programs for children, youth, and students, and supports the Army Family Covenant by reducing the conflict between mission readiness and parental responsibility. It is important for Families to stay involved with children's activities. Make time to keep your children active in the sports and activities their CYS offers.

Soldiers may be called to work sooner than expected so plan ahead about child care services. If possible, contact your installation's CYS at the following websites prior to your arrival for appointment and enrollment guidance.

Fort Benning -

Fort Leonard Wood -

Fort Jackson -

Fort Knox -

Fort Sill -
