Premier DOD Youth
Outreach Program

Welcome to DOD Starbase

Mission Statement: To expose our nation’s youth to the technological environments and positive civilian and military role models found on Active, Guard, and Reserve military bases and installations, nurture a winning network of collaborators, and build mutual loyalty within our communities, by providing 25 hours of exemplary hands-on instruction and activities that meet or exceed the National Standards.

I had pretty high expectations for the program, and my son was very excited in the months and weeks beforehand, but I could not have anticipated the high quality of our experience.
