Are you looking at a master’s degree or graduate certification in any of these three areas: family and community services, family financial planning or youth development? Checkout this announcement from the Department of Defense.
These areas (Family & Community Support, Family Financial Planning and Youth Development) definitely need attention in the military community. I would love to see more support for our military family as a whole. Barbara Thompson, director of DOD’s office for family policy, children and youth, agrees “Those are three areas that we find critical to support the military family community,” she said. “So the goal is not only will our service members, spouses and veterans have opportunities to receive their education, but they can also contribute back to the military community in those fields.”
Universities participating in the program are:
— Iowa State University;
— Kansas State University;
— Michigan State University;
— University of Missouri;
— Montana State University;
— University of Nebraska-Lincoln;
— North Carolina State University;
— North Dakota State University;
— Oklahoma State University;
— South Dakota State University; and

Veterans and military spouses if this is something you have been thinking about, an education that will help you and your entire community jump on it!
