 Frances Hesselbein Student Leadership Program: Since 2007, the Frances Hesselbein Student Leadership Program has selected 30 exemplary high school sophomores and juniors participating in their MCEC’s® Student2Student program to attend specialized leadership training at the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point, New York. Full tuition includes meals, lodging, program materials, and transportation for 15 students and adult sponsors. Transportation includes from student’s home base to training location and back, world-wide. 
 
The Frances Hesselbein Student Leadership Program objectives are focused on the following major areas: team building, leadership development to include goal setting and motivational workshop, resilience workshop, life span human development, character development, community involvement, and leaders in action (to include, USMA activity with cadets). All of which, contribute to the following outcomes: building leadership, citizenship, resiliency, strong ethical practices and academic excellence. The target timeframe for this program is November 2009 and November 2010. Post surveys are conducted and evaluated at the conclusion of the program.

Mission:

 Military children move an average of six to nine times during their K-12 school years. Many make multiple moves during high school alone.  Academic courses, extracurricular programs, graduation requirements and transfer of records vary greatly from state to state and even from school to school. These frustrations, in addition to giving up friends and associates, cause anxiety in military children. Separation from a deployed parent (or parents) tends to exacerbate an already difficult situation.  

The Military Child Education Coalition is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit , worldwide organization that identifies the challenges facing the highly mobile military child; increases awareness of these challenges in military and educational communities; and initiates and implements programs to overcome them. MCEC''s goal is to level the educational playing field for military children wherever they are located around the world, and to model programs that are beneficial to all highly mobile children.
