Team Leaders will work with a maximum of three Vantage Point Foundation participants per course. Team Leaders help veterans with the course material during the week of the course, serve as on-going mentors, help direct resources when Vantage Point Foundation participants return home, and generally position themselves as transition coaches going forward. The basic qualification for a Vantage Point Foundation Team Leader is to have served in the military and received an honorable discharge.
Peer Mentors are needed for post course support as veteran mentorship will have an immense, positive impact on these veterans and families as they reintegrate into the local community. This is an area where people all over this great state can volunteer to help not only our combat veterans, but their spouses and caregivers too. With the vast array of skills and talents that the citizens within our state have to offer, we can all reach out to help our warriors who have sacrificed so much for our freedom and security.
Fundraising is a continuous process. We always need people skilled at fund raising activities, and capable of soliciting contributions from individuals, businesses, and other charitable foundations. Also, if you are a member of an organization or business that donates funds or materials to charitable organizations, we would like to know more about your organization’s programs and processes.
Coordinate and provide transportation for VPF participants, special guests, and speakers from to travel from the Charleston airport and the surrounding region to the program facility and return them at the end of the course.
VPF is always in search of people with compelling and inspirational stories who have overcome great odds to become successful and happy in pursuing their goals.
We will need help with donated snacks/drinks during the course as well as a special evening meal each night. Assistance with setting up the food service, serving the meals, getting food to our site, and cleaning up are a major tasks at each program that require coverage.
Volunteers can assist with binding program material, assist with computer software, and other various tasks.
