Mission Statement

Our mission is to bring community partners together in support of local military children and youth. In a state like Vermont, where there is no military base to connect them, military children can be invisible to coaches, teachers, and communtiy.

OMK works with community partners, organizations, and volunteers to provide educational, recreational, and support activities locally to military kids across Vermont.

Description

The Foundations of our Program Are:

  1. Ready, Set, Go! Trainings which cover topics like military in Vermont, the deployment and reintegration cycle, stress and resiliency.
  2. Hero Packs - presented to a military child, helps them keep in contact with a deployed parent, and reminds them that the community supports them.
  3. Speak Out Military Kids brings military and civilian teens together to learn and educate the community about the challenges and opportunities of being a military kid.
  4. Mobile Technology Labs - a computer lab tat travels to wherever military youth and their families are, and teaches kids to us technology to keep in touch with a deployed parent.
