Program Sustainability: What Is It? And How Do I Get It?

Presented by: Theresa M. Ferrari, Ohio State University Extension

What comes to mind when you hear the word “sustainability”? It’s not just about money (but it sure helps). It’s about a program’s ability to sustain its activities and benefits over time. To do this, programs need human, informational, and financial resources. There are both internal and external factors that affect a program’s capacity for sustainability: funding stability, partnerships, organizational capacity, program evaluation, program adaption, communication, impacts, and strategic planning, to name just a few. In this session, we will discuss these factors and examples related to enhancing capacity to provide continued benefits for military youth and families.

Research Foundation for the 4-H Logic Models

Presented by: Shelley MacDermid Wadsworth, Purdue University

The logic models now being constructed for 4-H activities with military youth are based on principles from research about children and families. In this presentation, I will review some of the key studies that support the 4-H Logic Models.

Resilience Training for Army Teens

Presented by: Julie Broad, Army Resiliency Directorate

Over the past two years, the Army has conducted a pilot and controlled release of a teen curriculum that trains Army teens on the same resilience skills that are delivered to Soldiers and Spouses. A primary goal of this program is to provide the Army family with a common language around resilience; we want Soldier, Spouse, and Teen sitting around the family dinner table sharing a common vernacular and approach on building individual and family resilience. Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) has collaborated with the Army Resilience Directorate over the past two years confirming programmatic efficacy, and an overview of the program and these results will be presented at this workshop.

Rope Games

Presented by: Dr. Jim Cain, Teamwork & Teamplay

Roundtable: 4-H Scholarships for Military Youth – Possibilities and Roadblocks

Presented by: Vanessa Tranel, Colorado State University and Sandy Corridon, University of Maryland

Success is youth being involved in the 4-H program in each military community they live in and relocate to! BUT, what if youth are eligible for a 4-H scholarship in the county/state they live, but they move, and are no longer eligible for scholarships in the new or former location? Come share and help us evaluate, identify, and explore solutions to provide 4-H scholarship opportunities for mobile, military youth. Be part of pursuing sustainability and consistency for our military youth!

Science 2 Practice – Utilizing the Resources of the DoD/USDA Partnership for Military Families

Presented by: Eddy Mentzer, Program Manager for Spouse Education and Career Opportunities and the DoD/USDA Partnership for Military Families, Office of the Deputy Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Practice, Daniel F. Perkins, Penn State Clearing house for Military Family Readiness, and Kyle R. Hawkey, University of Minnesota

Since 2010, the DoD/USDA Partnerships for Military Families has led to the development of a number of tools and resources for helping professionals to utilize in supporting military families. A key to many of these products is their usefulness in both military and civilian communities. This workshop will explore two of these products (The Clearinghouse for Military Families and Military REACH) and how their resources can be leveraged in support of all families.

SMART (Safe, Monitored, and Responsible Technology)

Presented by: Candi Dierenfield, University of Alaska Fairbanks

TAW, MIRL, JFF, MOS. These are not military acronyms, but common “shorts” for text messaging. The object of this workshop is to provide an increased awareness about the misuse of smart phones and other mobile devices. Sexting and cyber-bullying instances are gathering more and more attention due to the negative consequences that might impact both the sender and the receiver of the message. Learn techniques of how to help decrease and prevent sexting and cyber-bullying and what to do when you are made aware it happening.

Student 2 Student S2S Transition Program

Presented by: Debra Longley, Military Child Education Coalition

Participants experience a sample of training provided to High School and Middle School student teams implementing the Student 2 Student (S2S) program at their school. S2S is a powerful student led program. All new students want to know: How do I find my way around? Who is going to be my way around? Who is going to be my friend? What do I know about the school’s requirements? Trained S2S leaders help new students navigate uncertain surroundings and answer these questions. Our workshop uses hands-on activities to find commonalities, to experience the dynamics of change and demonstrate effective listening, followed by a video and questions and answers.

Youth Using Social Media to Build Social, Emotional, and Cultural Competence

Presented by: Trudy Dunham, University of Minnesota



In today’s world where youth have more structured time and fewer places to gather, social media is increasingly becoming that third place where youth live out their social lives. Online is where youth interact with friends, negotiate complex relationships, establish social capital, and acquire abilities to interact with those of different cultures. This session reviews the research on youth use of social media, how it relates to building competence and 21st Century skills, and the apps, tools, and tactics youth are using.
