|Tell Me A Story (TMAS)|
The Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) TMAS program empowers military-connected children by using literature and children’s own stories in a way that fosters skills for resilience, strong peer and parent connections, a sense of pride and accomplishment, and a caring community. The MCEC believes that stories have the capacity to open family discussions on potentially difficult topics, such as family separation, deployment, moving, grief, and crisis.
