Supporting military youth and families in your communities

When military parents are mobilized, their kids' lives are turned upside down. They experience increased levels of stress and potential separation anxiety. They are need of heightened understanding and support from caring adults /youth in their schools, afterschool programs, and the community where they spend a large portion of their day.
This webinar will focus on military culture, deployment cycle, the issues that military families face during deployment and practical ideas how community members can support the military youth and their families. We will also connect participants to online resources that have been developed as part of the Army/4-H Development project to support youth programming for military youth but could be easily adapted for any community youth program or organization. REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. THE SESSION WILL BE ARCHIVED AND THE LINK POSTED.
