(WOODBRIDGE, VA) Society of Military Spouses in STEM (SMSS) today announced a strategic partnership with the Freedom Learning Group, LLC (FLG) in their most recent effort to employ qualified military spouses as educational content providers. FLG has rapidly become a trusted name in the content services industry by providing exceptional educational content developed by an underutilized, untapped resource; Military Spouse and Military Veteran Subject Matter Experts. FLG recently celebrated their 75th hire from the military community in just their second year of operation. This partnership means more career opportunities for military spouse STEM professionals, and a deeper bench of resources for academic publishers and corporate training facilitators seeking high quality content solutions.

“The need for reliable, qualified, subject matter expertise is continuously increasing across the career training and educational publishing industries.  We are thrilled to partner with the Society of Military Spouses in STEM.”, said Stacey Ecelbarger, Military Spouse, FLG President and Co-Founder. “Our missions closely align as we share a common goal to empower and support military spouses to help them reach their maximum professional potential while they support their service member. By providing high quality, affordable services to our clients, we look forward to employing more STEM professionals and keep them working in their chosen fields from any location on the globe.”

The mission of SMSS is to support active and retired military spouses in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields to reach their full potential. They have created a network to connect military spouses in STEM that provides academic and career guidance, mentorship, challenge resolution, and increasing career, internship, education, and scholarship opportunities for military spouses in STEM fields.

“We are delighted to partner with a company who understands the needs for remote employment in STEM, and also has the personal knowledge that veterans and military spouses face themselves.  By providing career enhancing, portable career opportunities for our members, Freedom Learning Group is investing in sustainable futures for our military families,” said Michelle Aikman, Director of Outreach, Society of Military Spouses in STEM.
