Educational Resources - Operation Military Kids

Maine Operation Military Kids (OMK) builds communication networks and trusting relationships between the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, military families and youth, youth leaders, schools, veterans, and community organizations.

The OMK partnership team includes representatives of Military Branches (Army, Navy, Air National Guard, Army National Guard, Marines, and Coast Guard), American Legion, Department of Education, Maine After School Network, 4-H,  and Boys & Girls Clubs, which strive to provide positive youth development programs and community-based support for children and families impacted by the mobilization and deployment of troops to fight in the Global War on Terrorism.

Hero Packs, the Mobile Tech Lab, School support along with other events, presentations, activities, and opportunities help youth to feel self-confident and supported.
