Mission Statement

Operation: Military Kids is the U.S. Army's collaborative effort with America's communities to support children and youth impacted by deployment. Regardless of whether Families are experiencing deployment for the first time, the second time or another in a series of multiple deployments, OMK's goal is to connect military children and youth with local resources in order to achieve a sense of community support and enhance their well-being.

* Operation: Military Kids now supports all branches of service.

Description

Operation: Military Kids (OMK) teams and partners support children and youth, from all branches of service, during deployment of their Service Member. With the increased call for youth support programming, a group of Military and civilian youth professionals met to identify life skills needed by youth to successfully navigate each stage of the deployment cycle. OMK used this information to create activities designed for specific grade groups, at four critical points in the deployment cycle: pre-deployment, during mobilization, 30 days and 60 days after reunion. These activities, in 2 hour and 4 hour formats are easy to teach, fun for the youth, and reinforce the identified critical life skills.
