Anew websitereplaces Military Teens on the Move.
Great news for Military youth and families! DoD has launched a new website, Military Youth on the Move, to replace Military Teens on the Move. This site is an easy to use resource that reaches out to youth with creative ways to cope with issues that arise in the face of a move, such as transitioning to a new school, saying goodbye to friends, and getting involved in a new community.
Each page contains age-specific advice on a given topic, answers to common questions, and helpful links for additional information and guidance. The site is filled with bright colors, photographs, and quotes from other youth to make the site friendly and engaging.
The website is divided into three target audiences: elementary school, middle school, and high school. Users simply click on their age group to get started. Once inside the site, users search different topics that pertain to both military youth in particular and youth in general. For example, within the elementary school section, youth can find helpful information about topics as general as bullying and divorce, and as specific to military youth as how to keep in touch with friends or start over at a new school or location after a military move. High school teens can also find topics tailored to their needs such as preparing for life after high school, opening up a bank account, and writing a resume.
Moving once or repeatedly has a significant impact on our youth. Take some time to sit down with your children and clickthrough the site. Military Youth on the Move helps to make the transition as smooth as possible by giving them a safe place to go to get information and advice.
