Georgia’s Military Installations

Georgia is home to many military installations, six of which have Child & Youth Services offices or Family Member Programs offices. These six installations actively participate in 4-H programming as part of the 4-H/Military Partnership. The following counties work with installations based in their county:

Counties with Installation Based Programs

** Lanier County is the Point of Contact for Moody AFB Staff.  However, Lowndes County and Lanier County offer 4-H programming to military residents for Moody AFB.
