Child, Youth & School Services (CYSS) is a network of systems and programs through which Fort Gordon provides quality child and youth development options. These programs reduce the conflict between parental responsibilities and unit mission requirements, support readiness and contribute to the quality of family life. Our child and youth development programs exist to promote the positive, healthy development of young people. We understand that through interesting, challenging and developmentally appropriate experiences, children and youth are able to reach their full potential.

Our philosophy is based on the idea that children and youth learn practical life skills through programs and activities that emphasize fun, play, action and group and individual challenges. Our clubs, teams, celebrations, social events and volunteer work are all vehicles to get young people involved in positive activities that promote learning. Children wishing to participate in any of the Child, Youth & School Services programs must register in the central registration system. Registration is free for all Child, Youth & School Services patrons. Registration hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday. The registration office is in Building 28320 on Lane Avenue. Please enroll or download needed forms at https://webtrac.mwr.army.mil/webtrac/gordoncyms.html.

If your child suffers from allergies, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or has been diagnosed with any other physical or psychological condition, he or she must be granted an interview with the Special Needs Accommodation Process (SNAP) Team. This team of child care professionals, physicians and counselors will determine how CYSS can best meet the needs of your child. During the registration process, your CYSS representative will be able to provide you with a Special Needs Placement Request Form. This form must be completed and returned to the central registration office within a week of registration. SNAP meetings are scheduled on the second Wednesday of each month, and parents are required to attend.

CYSS representatives will schedule program orientations for every new family during registration.

Child, Youth & School Services are open to authorized beneficiaries — all active duty, retiree, DOD civilians and DOD contractors.
