The Buddy-to-Buddy Program is looking for new volunteer veterans to help returning Michigan veterans!

About

SEEKING Veterans to help returning veterans link to financial, educational, health care and counseling resources when they return home.

If you have a passion for helping fellow veterans, are a good communicator, and are willing to donate your time to an amazing cause, the Buddy-to-Buddy program is looking for you. Veterans with combat experience are preferred but no required. We will provide training in communication skills and available community resources in Michigan. The time commitment required is a minimum of about 1-2 hours per week and one weekend day per month. Responsibilities include telephone support to military service members and presence at military events. Mileage and expenses are reimbursed.
