COURSES FOR VOLUNTEERS AND NONPROFITS WHO SUPPORT VETERANS
Support Veterans, Military Service Members And Their Families As A Volunteer
As a volunteer, making an effort to understand more about military culture can make a huge impact on your interactions with military service members, Veterans, and their families. PsychArmor’s free courses for volunteers and nonprofit staff are designed to help you better engage with and support military connected people. In this category, you will find our cornerstone course “15 Things Veterans Want You to Know,” as well as modules that help nonprofits and volunteers engage with one another such as “Basics of Volunteer Management,” “Communication Skills with Veterans,” and “Setting Boundaries as a Volunteer.”
Sponsored by the Bob Woodruff Foundation, these short, engaging educational videos are an asset to personnel at any organization that serves the military and Veteran community. To maintain the highest quality and relevance, PsychArmor collaborates with nationally-recognized subject matter experts to create and deliver online courses about issues related to the military and Veteran communities.
It was President Abraham Lincoln in his second inaugural address who declared a call to action for Americans to care for our Veterans. “To care for him who shall have borne the battle,” Lincoln said. Answer the call to be a No Veteran Dies Alone volunteer and learn how to be a reassuring presence to Veterans who would otherwise be alone when facing a serious illness or who might be at the end of life. In PsychArmor’s No Veteran Dies Alone volunteer program training courses, you will hear from experienced volunteers who provide care, comfort and companionship to Veterans facing death. The courses, narrated by Dr. Scott Shreve, are made possible in partnership with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
