Partnership to help address the unique needs of military youth as they face the tough challenges of frequent relocation and parent deployment

ATLANTA, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) announced today a three-year partnership with Fluor Corporation, one of the world's largest engineering, construction and maintenance service companies, to serve our country's military youth and professionals on U.S. military installations. On average, military youth relocate six to nine times between kindergarten and graduation. In addition to facing the usual challenges associated with adolescence, military youth encounter unique challenges associated with the frequent deployments of their parents.

To respond to these challenges, Fluor will sponsor an annual Military Teen Summit to give youth a forum for developing effective communication and resiliency skills. This year's Summit, to be held in March, will bring together a selected group of 65 military teens who will develop action plans for encouraging other military youth at their Clubs and in their communities. Fluor's support will also enable BGCA to offer specialized programs in on-installation Clubs, and resiliency training to Club staff helping youth develop skills to overcome unique hardships associated with military families.

"At the heart of our organization is a passion to make a difference in the lives of young people across the country. This includes providing our military youth with the vital support they need as their parents and guardians protect and serve our country," said Terrill Wicks, national vice president, Military & Outreach Services, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. "We are excited to partner with Fluor Corporation, a company which supports the men and women who have served in the Armed Forces by providing career opportunities as they transition from military to civilian professions."

"We are proud to be able to support the women and men of the Armed Forces at more than 50 military installations, domestic and abroad. In our philanthropic efforts, we also strive to have a positive impact on the lives of military personnel and their families," said Fluor Chairman and CEO David Seaton. "Our range of support to military service members and veterans includes providing educational scholarships, building specially adapted homes, and participating in a national initiative to help veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. We look forward to partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to serve military youth and equip them with essential leadership and life skills."

Since 1991, BGCA has provided services to children of military personnel, a significant resource to these families. Currently, BGCA serves almost 500,000 youth on U.S. military installations through membership and outreach, and 16,000 children of military personnel at 1,200 traditional Clubs.
