Whether a wounded warrior or an active military member, Valor & Honor provides a stress-free,
hands-on outdoor adventure.
We provide workplace transition support to both active-duty service members entering the civilian marketplace as well as veterans pursuing new careers. Our primary support in this area relates to assisting with creating or modifying a resume, translating military skills into those currently sought after in the civilian workplace, interview skills and pursuing relevant career paths.
We assist with peer networking via our events and through social media. The suicide rate among veterans is at an alarming level, with most estimates showing 22 per day. Many veterans miss the camaraderie and interaction with other military members and we believe this connection with others who understand their experiences is crucial in stemming the tide of suicide.
In addition to hosting 200 active-duty military and veterans over the course of 2017, we partnered with local schools to educate students about the Armed Services by bringing in military members to share about their day-to-day roles. We also collected over 300 cards made by students for Veterans Day, and in partnership with the U.S. Army, delivered those cards to veterans in the community. Additionally, we donated space heaters and food to many local veterans who needed help this past winter.
We’re honored to provide our participant’s access to a licensed family life counselor experienced with supporting the Armed Services. Whether they need to discuss issues related to their service or other issues they are dealing with they have a resource available to assist them.
I love what Valor & Honor Outdoors represents and volunteering with them. It’s a mission everyone can believe in and help make more events possible.
