PROJECT:

Honorably Me

Honorably Me will focus on serving children of military families, ages 10-14, as they face a unique set of challenges compared to their civilian counterparts. Through the use of 3x3 basketball, youth will have the opportunity to improve their skills and additonally, have a safe space to share their unique experience as a miltiary child. The curriculum will focus on reducing the stigma of mental health by exploring strengths of vulnerability and will gradually help youth develop healthy habits and coping skills that will allow them to thrive during uncertain times.
