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.
