A group of traveling "change agents," exited a white school bus at the Fort Jackson Imboden School Age Center, with coffee in hand and thinking caps on.
Senate staff delegates from Washington, D.C., stopped at the center as part of their visit to Fort Jackson to gain a better understanding of how the Army builds readiness. Discussions were held on how Army training is developed, conducted and supervised, this stop of the tour focused on Family structure when mission calls.
Child, Youth Services officials said the Imboden street School Age Center is setup to operate as a home away from home if necessary.
Sunny Bolton, Fort Jackson Child Youth Service Coordinator, led the tour of the facility and answered various questions concerning paternity and maternity leave and the role the center plays to enable Soldiers to meet mission requirements.
"We were able to talk with the members of the tour about how important the Child and Youth Services mission is to the U.S. Army Training Center Mission. I truly think the members of the tour walked away with an understanding and appreciation of the quality service CYS provides to so many hard working Soldiers.
"Supporting our Soldiers is why CYS team members come to work every day." Bolton said.
