Calling All Military Mochas!

Military Mocha Moms had a great first network meeting last week. We discussed some of the difficult aspects of motherhood that are unique to military moms and even more the Mocha military mom. We explored the best way that this network can provide support for this group of ladies at this point in our journey. Our next group discussion will be held in the last week of April. We'd love to have more military Mochas join in the conversation. Whether you are an active duty, reserves, or retired member or spouse, we'd like to hear from you.

Tweens and Teens Network: A Day on Not Off

On MLK Day, Mocha TnTs served their community by committing to "A Day on Not Off" of service. The TnTs filled six boxes with toiletries for Covenant House Georgia, a shelter for homeless youth between ages 18-21. We collected socks, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, wipes, lotion, etc. When we dropped those items off, the shelter's staff members were surprised and grateful for the amount of items that we were able to collect in just six days. I am extremely proud to be a part of the TnT Network, they have a passion for giving and are simply AWESOME!

Travel Bloggers Summit

Have you studied abroad? We are excited to be part of the Travel Bloggers Summit this week in NYC (formerly White House Travel Bloggers Summit on Study Abroad and Global Citizenship). The summit shares initiatives and new strategies for American students to study, volunteer, and work abroad, including scholarships and exchange programs. #studyabroadbecause


Did you know that one in three current world leaders have been on an exchange program in the United States?

Studying abroad is a critical component to deepening and broadening relationships with citizens overseas. Today, fewer than 10% of U.S. students take part in study abroad. 

Today’s global economy demands students have more than just a degree when they graduate from college, but also the cultural and language skills to be effective.
