The U.S. Coast Guard is inviting families to Bring Your Children to OUR Work Day on April 22.

Throughout that day, our page will feature 25+ virtual field trips to Coast Guard units around the world. Think of them as guided tours, with an active duty member welcoming children (grades K-12) onto our cutters, helicopters, airplanes and bases. The event is open to both Coast Guard families and the general public, in honor of the work America's parents are doing to help keep the country running throughout the pandemic.

***Month of the Military Family***

During the month of November and throughout the year, we recognize and celebrate our incredible Coast Guard families.
Around the world, military families are waiting by the phone or computer for word from their service member. A child is taking their first step, while their parent serves abroad. Holidays and special occasions are celebrated on alternative days. Spouses are lovingly tending to the homefront. Many are facing hard “goodbyes” and experiencing sweet “hellos.”

Although their days aren’t always easy, they persevere. They stand beside their service member, and during times of deployment, they stay behind. They admirably live a life that many people cannot begin to imagine – exhibiting great courage, strength, determination, and resilience!

And, throughout this journey of military life, they’ve discovered a lot to be thankful for.

THE COAST GUARD 2020 CHILD CARE NEEDS ASSESSMENT SURVEY LAUNCH (ALCOAST 304/20)

The survey can be accessed at:
www.uscgchildcaresurvey.com

At no time in recent history have the challenges of
balancing child care responsibilities with Coast Guard duties and the workplace been greater. The 2020 Child Care Needs Assessment was developed before the COVID-19 pandemic, but it couldn't be more relevant in helping us capture the impacts of child care on morale, retention and performance.

The 2020 Child Care Needs Assessment Survey will be available to Active Duty, Reservists, and Civilians working for the U.S. Coast Guard and will
take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.

Supervisors, Commanding Officers, Officers-in-Charge, and Gold & Silver Badges should encourage and make every effort to support participation in the Child Care Needs Assessment Survey by Active Duty and Reservists, General Schedule (GS) and Non-Appropriated Fund (NAF) personnel with
dependent children 12 years old and younger.

The goal of this effort is to determine the availability and affordability of child care services to Coast Guard personnel, to evaluate and understand child care challenges facing our families, and determine the
effectiveness of the current Coast Guard programs and policies that address child care challenges. Analysis of the data will be used to develop a strategic plan, policy and guidance for Coast Guard Child Development Services. While participation in this survey is extremely important to the Coast Guard, participation is strictly voluntary. Participants can be assured of complete confidentiality.

Any questions or concerns about the survey should be directed to COMDT (CG-1112), Child Development Services Program Manager, Renee L. Podolec
at: [email protected], (202) 475-5160.
