Youth Sponsorship Program
The Youth Center offers a Youth Sponsorship Program, where incoming youth are matched to the interested Offutt youth in their age group, and letters are exchanged. This is a great way to learn about your new duty station prior to your arrival.
If you did not get a form in a sponsor packet, you can send an email requesting a youth sponsor. Include your name, mailing address, age, grade in school, projected date of arrival and any questions you might have to the Offutt Youth Center.
Employment opportunities for teens in the Omaha metro are good. You must be 16 years old to work in the state of Nebraska. There are fast food and telemarketing opportunities, in addition to the seasonal jobs, such as lifeguarding and parks activities.
