Speak Out for Military Kids (SOMK)

imageSOMK is a core component of OMK. It is an ongoing youth-driven community outreach program that is designed for both military and non-military youths. Through SOMK, Youth from grades 7-12 create a speakers' bureaus and develop lectures, public service announcements, video, and other materials to share their experiences with others. In addition to building public awareness about issues facing military families during mobilization and deployment, SOMK provides its youth participants with the opportunity to gain valuable leadership, research, organization, technology, and public speaking skills.
