Vet Corps - Washington Department of Veterans Affairs

The Washington Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA) will tap the knowledge, skills and abilities of veterans by engaging them in AmeriCorps national service positions which will enable them to make a positive difference in their community and improve their quality of life as a civilian. Fifty (50) members of the Vet Corps will:

• Connect with veterans and their family members attending colleges and universities across Washington State assisting them so they can organize, partner with, volunteer and or serve with other AmeriCorps program.

• Vet Corps members also assist with connecting veterans and their family members to information about veteran specific services and programs, on and off campus, while at the same time helping to create a veteran community at the college.

• Utilize AmeriCorps members to organize and publicize volunteer opportunities for active duty military and members of the Guard and Reserve to enable them to qualify to receive the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal and/or the President’s Volunteer Service Award.
