Instructional Programs for Children and Youth

SKIESUnlimited is a part of the Army’s Division of Child, Youth & School Services (CYSS) within the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (FMWR). Our mission is to provide the children and youth with a variety of classes taught by qualified, imaginative and dedicated instructors, creating experiences of value, excellence and enjoyment.

The name SKIESUnlimited is an acronym for “Schools of Knowledge, Inspiration, Exploration and Skills” with the word “Unlimited” representing the unlimited possibilities this program can offer children and youth. SKIESUnlimited encompasses instructional programs for children and youth ranging from infant to adolescence. Through SKIESUnlimited, Fort Jackson children and youth all have equal access to opportunities that expand their knowledge, inspire them, allow them to explore and acquire new skills. SKIESUnlimited has a four-school system:

  • School of Academic Skills, Mentoring and Intervention
  • School of Arts, Recreation and Leisure
  • School of Life Skills, Citizenship and Leadership
  • School of Sports, Fitness and Health

 

Children and youth participate in instructional programs for a variety of reasons:  to explore new skills; pursue and nurture personal interests; interact socially with others; build a resume; bolster a college application; or foster a close relationship with caring, knowledgeable adults outside of the home.  All Fort Jackson CYS Services SKIESUnlimited instructors have had local and national background checks and training in CPR, First Aid, Safety and Child Abuse Awareness, Reporting and Prevention in addition to training in their specialty area.

Young people spend as much as 80% of their waking hours outside the classroom. The latest educational research confirms that students’ involvement in after-school instructional programs is beneficial on many levels. Instructional programs have been shown to promote the intellectual development of children and youth and foster the development of critical life, leadership and social skills.  In addition, youth involved in instructional programs during the critical hours of 3:00 – 8:00 p.m. are less likely to engage in undesirable behaviors. 

 

Eligibility
Authorized users are dependents of active duty military, Department of Defense civilian employees, National Guard, Reservists, employees of DoD contractors on Fort Jackson and retirees.
