Military Child Education Coalition response to COVID-19

We know this is an especially difficult time for our military families and children. Although resiliency and inner strength are qualities we admire in military families, during these uncertain times, MCEC is here with additional support.  Taking what we’ve learned from over 20 years of helping military kids and their families successfully manage transition and mobility issues, we have culled supportive content and resources for parents, educators, and students. We hope you will use the content and resources here to inspire and renew a sense of hope and wellbeing in your life and the lives of those in your care.
