  9. 9. Partnerships In Education Your Command Can Be a Partner in Education! School partnerships can be beneficial for Navy commands and area schools. Sailors get an opportunity to connect with their community while earning community service hours which can be used included in evals, and toward earning the Volunteer Service Medal. The benefits for the schools are insurmountable. Students build positive relationships with our service members and feel additionally connected to their military community. Ultimately it raises awareness of the benefits of working with the military community and helps to support our military children in education Command Support Opportunities • Provide Navy personnel to be guest speakers at schools • Plan field trips to the ship /command to reward students for academics and citizenship • Establish a pen pal project or video project with students while ship is deployed. • Enhance the students’ knowledge of”world g es, running clubs, or special events when ship is in port. • Provide tutoring and extra help at homework clubs • Assist with school self-help projects • Share an expertise or hobby with students • These are only a few ways to get involved!
