The average military-connected student moves six to nine times during their K-12 years. Students faced with frequent moves must constantly integrate into a new educational system, new community, and find new friends. Student 2 Student (S2S) is a student leadership program and one of the first programs that Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) created to help support military-connected students. MCEC has three versions of S2S (Student 2 Student, Junior Student to Student, and Elementary Student to Student), all of which focus on “100% acceptance” of all students and on ensuring new students are transitioning smoothly into their new school. The programs focus on three major areas—academics, relationships, and finding the way, which refers to orienting new students to the school. S2S programs include military and nonmilitary students.
