Deployment Cycle Support Yellow Ribbon Youth Outreach Guides (2009)
OMK Tech Discovery is a *new* OMK curriculum being during the summer of 2011. We are currently in pilot testing of these activities. Stay tuned for more information and links to the 20 activities that use iPad2's and the latest technology to help OMK youth manage issues of deployment.
The OMK Deployment Cycle Support Yellow Ribbon Youth Outreach was done in 2009 and was designed for specific grade groups, at four critical points in the deployment cycle:
*30 days after reunion
*60 days after reunion.
These activities in 2 hr and 4 hr formats were designed to be easy to teach, fun for youth, and reinforce critical life skills.
A total of 60 unique and relevant experiential activities with family letters were developed and a tool kit filled with supplies was assembled and distributed for use.
This project was completed in 2009 and has won praise from the military, Service Members, families and states.
As the project manager, as well as the editor and writer, I am proud to announce that the OMK Activity Guides and Facilitator Guide
is the national winner for the 2010 NAE4-HA Award for an Educational Curriculium Package in the Team Catagory.
