The MVAA is putting out a call for volunteers for its new Buddy to Buddy Veteran Mentorship Initiative, which is designed to support service members and veterans of all eras in Michigan in linking them to resources that address a variety of issues. The program, which replaces the University of Michigan program of a similar name, is intended to be active in all Michigan counties and ultimately help service members and veterans thrive in the communities they live, work and play.
This initiative requires a group of volunteers that are passionate about veteran advocacy and can provide our service members and veterans one-on-one mentorship. MVAA will provide training on veteran resources and best practices to better troubleshoot a variety of issues from transportation to accessing federal benefits.
If you are an honorably discharged veteran interested in volunteering, please complete the application form or contact the Michigan Veterans Resource Service Center at 1-800-MICH-VET to have the application emailed or mailed to you.
