Every Kid Outdoors National Pass for Families with 4th Graders (10 yr olds) 

Do you have a 10 year old in your home? Did you know your family is eligible to get a free pass into any National Park in the US? Simply follow directions on the first button below so you and your family can start planning an adventure. 

The program focuses on children 10 years of age--the age of most fourth graders--based on research that indicates children ages 911 are at a unique developmental stage in their learning where they begin to understand how the world around them works in more concrete ways and they are more receptive to engaging with nature and the environment. By focusing on this age group year after year, the program aims to ensure every child in the United States has the opportunity to visit their Federal lands and waters by the time he or she is 11 years old, thereby establishing a lifelong connection to enjoy and protect our American outdoor heritage.

Many children who spend time in foster care experience problems sleeping, which can negatively impact their overall functioning.

If you are a foster, adoptive, or kinship parent of a 6- to 10-year-old child who struggles with sleep, you may be eligible to receive a FREE telehealth delivered sleep intervention developed specifically for children with a history of adversity. DFPS has approved the study for children in foster in Regions 6a and 6b only. However, adopted and kinship families from across Texas are eligible.

All confidential sessions take place online with a sleep therapist and families are compensated for their participation.
