Go Army???

Dear Homeschool Associations Director/Administrator,

Some time ago, you received an invitation to join us for a Military Careers Workshop for Homeschool parents. Unfortunately, this workshop was subsequently cancelled due to low response and other factors beyond our control.

In an effort to keep the homeschool community informed, it remains the Army’s goal to provide a comprehensive understanding of its service requirements, incentives, benefits, free programs, education resources and career opportunities in order establish, maintain and nurture a partnership with our state’s homeschools and parents.

At this time, I would like to invite you to explore several resources and virtual information about the Army by visiting goarmy.com.  This site which is available 24/7 is a valuable one stop resource portal for homeschool administrators and parents alike. Homeschool students may also utilize the site to find their Army Career path/career match, explore the benefits of serving in the Army, connect with an Army representative, learn the process of how to join, locate scholarship opportunities and more.

With that said, currently our higher command is conducting preliminary planning for next year’s annual National Educators Tour at Ft. Carson, CO. I have been asked to place a feeler out to the homeschool education community to gauge interest as this time. The tour will be conducted face-to-face and is scheduled for June 7-11, 2021.  You may find a short video of testimonials from past participants at this link: http://www.usarec.army.mil/downloads/videos/EdTourV1_720p.mp4.

As a brief overview, all selected attendees who participate will be provided:

– Transportation to and from Ft. Gordon, GA
– Hotel reimbursement
– Daily allowance for meals and incidentals
– Professional tour coordination
– A relaxing, informative and collaborative learning environment

No commitment is required at this time as we are only gauging interest. However, should you be interested please contact me directly at Shantelle.n.james.civ@mail.mil

Should you have questions, requests, or would simply would like additional information to connect to the military community, my personal contact information may be found below. At enclosure I have also taken the liberty of providing a copy of your local Army leadership command team as well. 

In interim, stay safe.
