Educational Resources

There are almost two million children who have a parent or guardian serving in the United States Armed Forces. Roughly three quarters of those military connected youth are 4-18 years of age. Military connected youth can be found in every school district in the country. With only one active duty base in Ohio (Wright Patterson Air Force Base), the importance of education/community outreach could not be greater when it comes to supporting the social, emotional, and academic needs of these children.
