Membership Benefits

      MCEC Membership Benefits by Type

America’s military-connected children lead a unique life. As a member of the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) you recognize the challenges faced by our military children. On average, they’ll settle in to six to nine new schools before they graduate high school – and during each of those moves, they’ll miss critical lessons, have to make new friends, and rebuild community ties. Your MCEC membership dues go to programs that welcome a student to their new school, guide a parent on preparing their child for college, provide a caring adult with tools to support military children in the classroom as well as the community, and fund a researcher to keep valuable program resources accurate and current. 

 

Best of all, as an MCEC member, you show military-connected children and their families you care about the sacrifices they make every day.  

 

Our professional membership numbers are important as they reflect those who care about supporting military-connected children and youth Our numbers are of particular interest to members of Congress and Federal Government senior leaders, as well as potential corporate sponsors, foundations, and individual donors.
