Be SMART (Safe, Monitored, and Responsible Texting) with Youth Webinar
Thursday, May 8, 2014, 1:00 EST
Presented by: Candi Dierefield

TAW, MIRL, JFF, MOS. These are not military acronyms, but common "shorts" for text messaging. The object of this workshop is to provide an increased awareness about the misuse of smart phones and other mobile devices.  Sexting and cyber-bullying instances are gathering more and more attention due to the negative consequences that might impact both the sender and the receiver of the message.  Learn techniques of how to help decrease and prevent sexting and cyber-bullying and what to do when you are made aware of it happening.

Operation Purple Camp

The National Military Family Association has collaborated with outstanding camp partners to continue supporting military kids by providing a camp where they connect with other kids just like them. At Operation Purple Camp we embrace being "purple" and bring together military kids from all ranks and services, including National Guard and Reserve components, to a unique and memorable summer camp experience. Applications for 2014 are now being accepted. Apply here.
