South Carolina’s Operation: Military Kids program supports families and youth of military personnel, emphasizing reaching out to families of deployed Army National Guard and Army Reserve soldiers. SC OMK is providing positive youth development programming for the youth and helping mobilize communities to support families of deployed military members. We are reaching the kids through Speak Out for Military Kids, Hero Packs and the Mobile Technology Lab. We have built a strong coalition with various agencies and volunteer groups across the state. The coalition consists of 4-H (both state and local), Boys and Girls Clubs, Army, Air Force and Navy Reserves, American Legion, schools, military installations, and more.
