YOUR COMMAND CAN BE A PARTNER IN EDUCATION

The Partnership in Education (PIE) Program is designed to encourage support of the local schools through Navy volunteer efforts. PIEs offer opportunities for military and civilian members attached to commands to give their time as volunteers at local schools. The program contributes military resources and services to help nurture the intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth of children and youth. In addition, this program forges a partnership between commands and the local schools and increases awareness of the US military’s mission. Here are a few ways your command can support a PIE. Can you think of others?

• Be a guest speaker or reader.

• Plan a field trip to the ship.

• Establish a pen pal or video project.

• Provide positive, healthy engagement during lunch recess by playing outdoor games with students.

• Share an expertise or hobby with students.

• Assist with school self-help projects on campus.

Contact the School Liaison Program at 619-991-2509 or nbcslo@us.navy.mil to start your PIE today!
Individual active duty volunteers are also needed for Operation Pals, a weekly after school program, plus special event assistance. Contact the Navy School Liaison at 
nbcslo@us.navy.mil to be added to the Volunteer Distribution List.

WEEKLY ORGANIZATION SPOTLIGHT  

There are numerous organizations who provide valuable assistance and resources to military families. Each week, I will highlight one such organization.  

This week’s organization: Code of Support Foundation (COSF), https://www.codeofsupport.org/

COSF’s unique programs help transform military and veteran lives. While there are tens of thousands of resources available to those who serve and have served, finding and accessing them can be fraught with barriers. COSF helps those in need navigate and access critical services by providing one-on-one support. Through a digital PATRIOTlink platform and direct case coordination services, COSF connects veterans and caregivers to the people and resources they need to live full, healthy lives.
