The Military Child Education Coalition

The Military Child Education Coalition’s Student 2 Student Program (S2S) is a student led organization that welcomes incoming students to their school and helps departing students prepare for their next school.  This is done by bringing together both military and civilian connected students.  This allows for a well-rounded group of students.


The S2S Program was created for all highly mobile students such as military connected students.  Everyone knows people in the military move all over the world and move often.  Some children of military members may attend up to four different schools just during their elementary and middle school years.  This can be stressful on those students.  Just when they are making lots of friends it is time to switch schools.  This program connects these students with each other as well as civilian connected students.  It allows those affected by a move to be with others who understands and helps civilian connected students understand what it is like to switch schools so often.  The civilian connected students help the group learn the norms for the area and show them what there is to do for fun and entertainment.   It is an extremely successful program that is advantageous and useful to all new students on a campus.
