Education Resources

Ohio Military Kids seeks to connect geographically dispersed military youth with educational resources in their home county.  We have an Education Specialist, Mark Sherer, on staff with the Ohio National Guard, who is available to help identify and address any education needs of military children.  If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact him at:

Family Resources During Time of Change (COVID-19)

The following editions are resources put together by the Ohio National Guard Family Readiness and Warrior Support team to assist families with ideas and resources for spending time at home with family members. This compilation of resources will be published each week to support youth and families through what can be a challenging time. Our goal is that out of the suggestions shared, your family will find activities that will work best for you and the age of your children. The Ohio National Guard Family Readiness & Warrior Support is committed to supporting you and your family.
