Sesame Street for Military Families

Sesame Street for Military Families

Sesame Workshop is the nonprofit educational organization that revolutionized children’s television programming with the landmark Sesame Street. Our mission is to help kids grow stronger, smarter, and kinder. We do so in more than 150 countries. Beyond television, the Workshop creates content for multiple media platforms including radio, film, home video, the Internet, mobile devices, gaming consoles, books, magazines, and community outreach. Workshop initiatives focus on a wide range of issues, from math skills and literacy to health, diversity, and military deployment. Initiatives meet specific needs to help kids and families develop critical skills, acquire healthy habits, and build emotional strength to prepare them for lifelong learning.

Education Connections

Education Connections

The DoDEA Partnership and Resources Division serves as both a catalyst to integrate existing educational efforts and an entity to champion quality education opportunities for all military children. The resources shared are based on decades of work with military-connected agencies, public and private not for profit organizations, and our direct work with families.
