South Carolina: Military Kid Volunteers
Through South Carolina: Military Kids Volunteers Can:
Organize special events to acknowledge the sacrifices that soldiers and their families, especially military kids, are making on behalf of their community and their nation.
Serve as tutors for military kids while soldier parents are deployed.
Give military kids an occasional break from the additional home responsibilities - preparing family meals, struggling with household repairs, coming straight home from school and babysitting younger siblings - they have assumed in the absence of a parent(s).
Become mentors for military kids coping with the stress of knowing their deployed soldier parents may be in harm's way.
Compile and distribute "Hero Packs" and other items that recognize military kids as "every day home front heroes".
Make SC: Military Kids a part of ongoing community life in locations where there are children and youth of citizen soldiers.
Through South Carolina: Military Kids Schools Can:
Help create academic, social and emotional support networks for students affected by military deployments.
Provide professional development opportunities for counselors and teachers to become aware of the stresses military children are facing as a result of the Global War on Terrorism.
Use community and military resources to connect students and their families with helpful people and organizations in their hometown.
Communicate with parents who are deployed and help them stay connected with their children's educational progress.
Make SC: Military Kids an integral part of school plans and programs when and where the needs arise.
Using the STEM Lab, SCMK can support Military Youth in after school programs.
