The OMK Deployment Cycle Youth Outreach Activity guides provide easy to use activity plans for volunteers and Military Child & Youth professional staff working with youth kindergarten through 12th grade from all Service Branches; keyed to grade appropriate life skill development and developed for 2 hr and 4 hr settings. Curriculum includes 60 fun, quality experiential learning experiences linked to four phases of the deployment cycle (pre-deployment, during mobilization, 30 & 60 days after reunion).
There is a toolkit which provides the durable equipment needed to conduct all of these activities. The Toolkits are available through your State's OMK Project Director.
