Yellow Ribbon Resource
Thank you for visiting the Minnesota Department of Education’s resource page for military children, families, and educators. Thousands of Minnesotans serve our country in the military and in turn, thousands of military families and children are impacted by their service. As leaders in education, we want every educator to know that children in their classrooms and schools may be affected by the military service of a parent or family member.
To discover more resources, activities and support systems for Military Children and their Families, please visit www.beyondtheyellowribbon.org and www.operationmilitarykids.org.community.

The Minnesota Department of Education has partnered with Governor Pawlenty’s Yellow Ribbon Task Force and other educational organizations to increase awareness of military issues within Minnesota schools. As part of this effort, we are making available informational resources for military children, families and educators.
We hope that every educator will take the time to familiarize themselves with this information regarding the effects of deployment and reintegration on children.
