Service, Not Self

Programs and Program Guides

How we serve.

The American Legion Auxiliary Department of Michigan’s various programs help units engage the community, state, and nation. Each program provides an opportunity for members to be active in the unit. A unit may assign various committee roles to members for each program.

Programs help the American Legion Auxiliary support the pillars of our organization, which are Americanism, National Security, Veterans, and Children & Youth.

Program guides give guidance to the unit committee chairperson or member about the details of that role and program. Questions can be directed to the department chairperson or department committee members listed in the guides.  Not every program has a guide available.  If you have questions, contact your unit president, district president, or the department committee chairperson for more information.
