Sesame Workshop

Sesame Workshop is a nonprofit educational organization making a meaningful difference in the lives of children worldwide by addressing their critical developmental needs.

Beginning in 2006, we developed the Sesame Street for Military Families initiative to help families navigate the unique challenges of military life: deployments and homecomings, grief and loss, military-to-civilian transitions, staying healthy as a family, and more. Since its inception, the initiative has grown to include bilingual videos, storybooks and activities, a free Sesame Street/USO family tour, television specials, and “Sesame Rooms” in military spaces, with new topics and outreach programs added regularly. Please check out our page for more information on the following topics.
