Community Outreach: Battle Buds Organization

A Message from Battle Buds organization: 
 
Good afternoon,
 
   We have been positively overwhelmed by the great response we have seen to Veterans wanting mentorship focused on them successfully transitioning and meeting their full potential. We believe that the positive response has come from our motto of PLAYING OFFENSE FOR VETS!! We don't sit on the sidelines. We take action.    
 
   We (all founders are Veterans) would like to extend an invitation to you to participate in our mentorship program (www.battlebuds.org). Thanks to the hundreds who have already signed up.
 
   Battle Buds provides mentorship for Veterans to assist them to successfully transition within five critical domains (1. Employment/ Education, 2. Housing, 3. Family/ Legal, 4. Social/ Physical Fitness, and 5. Medical). All mentors are trained and certified through a curriculum that we developed and validated at Teachers College, Columbia University. They are also connected through a strong network of organizations within each of the domains.
 
   In NYC, we currently have 50+ trained and certified mentors working with Veterans. We are in a study phase right now with a strategy to expand across the United States and to integrate into the DOD so that we can assist Service Members with their transition before ETSing. Service members receive PCS sponsors. Our goal is to provide ETS sponsors/mentors. You deserve it!!
 
   We are in the process of establishing our next chapter in Washington D.C. and Dallas, TX.
 
  Thanks. Please feel to contact us if you have any questions.
