It’s tough being a military kid, especially if you have to move around a lot. Military Kid Ambassadors (MKA) is a campaign designed to encourage military kids to be proud of who they are and step into leadership. Often not sticking around long enough to easily run for class president or other leadership positions at school, MKA’s can be ambassadors in their own school. By signing up, they commit to reach out to other new military kids they meet and offer a helping hand, a friend to eat lunch with, or just listen.
Our Mission Statement
The purpose of MKA is to help connect military kids together for friendship, to gain confidence in leadership, and impacting their community
By becoming a MKA, I pledge to:
1. Find another military kid who needs a battle buddy
2. Talk to your school teachers, counselors, or principal about becoming a milkid ambassador for your school. (See examples for your age group below.)
3. Encourage other military kids to become military kid ambassadors as well!
Ambassador: a military kid who is a leader in his or her school and community, an example to his or her peers, living out the values of respect and integrity. No matter how temporary his or her assignment, Military Kid Ambassadors make a difference whenever they can.
