The BOOT program was created to help make the transition easier for military kids and frame it as an adventure instead of another move. The program was made affordable for public schools and DoDea schools overseas. Through BOOT, members can find a safe, fun and inclusive place—a place where they can form lasting relationships, develop a sense of belonging and make positive contributions to the lives of their families and community. It is my hope through this program that it will foster a sense community for military kids. Help them accept change and adapt to difficulties through each move. And help them grow into confident, curious, and courageous individuals.
