As a for-profit educational content and services provider, Freedom Learning Group is able to host instructional design internships of military spouse educators that produce courses for the MissionOER™ course catalog.

"As a biochemist and technical writer, being unable to find work in my field and being unemployed overseas with a master’s degree has been a sobering consequence of being a military spouse. Through the MissionOER program I'm able to contribute to the education industry while continuing my professional development at multiple levels.” 

  - Mariah Covington, intern instructional designer of the MissionOER program’s first cohort.
