What's Your Why?
WHY would you want to be a VAVS Volunteer? One of the most important benefits of volunteering is the opportunity to explore and fulfill your passions. For many VAVS volunteers, that passion is serving Veterans. For others, their "why" is the chance to explore a new career field. For some, they like feeling like they are investing in an activity that is making a difference in their community.
VA sponsors Welcome Home events around the country for returning military service members and their families. The events provide important information and guidance on accessing health care and other benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs. Follow the link to see when a Welcome Home event is scheduled near you, or contact your local VA Voluntary Service office.
VAVS Volunteers are an invaluable resource for the Department of Veterans Affairs. It is impossible to calculate the amount of caring and sharing that volunteers provide to Veteran patients. They are a priceless asset to the Nation’s Veterans and to VA.
