Military Family Readiness Academy

The Military Family Readiness Academy is a new virtual learning opportunity for professionals helping military families navigate the unique context of military life. Readiness is essential not only for a robust military, but for the well-being of military families.

What is the Military Family Readiness Academy?

The Academy is an annual live programming series with special learning and engagement opportunities suitable for individuals, groups, and organizations. With a new series added each year, the Academy takes a multidisciplinary approach to a complex issue faced by military family service providers in their work.

Academy Series:

The inaugural Military Family Readiness Academy series focuses on the unique needs of military families in the context of disaster and hazard readiness. Service members and their families experience added stressors and challenges in the face of disasters and hazards. What does military family readiness look like during these event lifecycles?

Join us as we explore this complex issue in two parts, offered in fall 2020 and winter 2021. Both series prioritize on-the-ground strategy and action, with sessions spaced over time to maximize the learning experience. Special (optional) activities offered during and between series keep participants engaged, thinking, and in communication with one another.
