Buddy-to-Buddy Volunteer Veteran Program
Seeking Veterans Interested in Assisting Returning Michigan Vets
No one can be a better source of support than a veteran who's been there.
We are seeking veterans to help returning Post-9/11 military service members and veterans link to financial, educational, health care, and counseling resources throughout the deployment cycle. If you are a veteran willing to donate your time to an amazing cause, the Buddy-to-Buddy Volunteer Veteran Program is looking for you.
Veterans with combat experience and mental health training or experience are preferred, but all are encouraged to apply. We will provide training in communication skills and available community resources in Michigan. The time commitment required is a minimum of about 2-3 hours per week and one weekend day per month. Responsibilities include attendance at assigned Armories once per month on drill weekends, providing telephone support to military service members, regular engagement in weekly support calls with other volunteers, and attendance at military events. Mileage and expenses are reimbursed.
