The Oregon Veteran Volunteer Training Program Requires Volunteers
Oregon Veteran Volunteer Training: The Veteran Volunteer Program of the Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs is looking for volunteers in Linn, Benton, and Marion counties who want to help elderly veterans in their communities.
Volunteers Are Required For The Oregon Veteran Volunteer Training Program
The program’s goal is to give its volunteers the knowledge they need to help veterans, particularly older citizens, gain access to the benefits and resources to which they are entitled.
Volunteers work closely with the Veteran Volunteer Coordinator and the accredited local veteran service officer or tribal veteran service officer in their respective communities to locate veterans who may need assistance accessing their benefits in places like long-term care facilities, senior centres, libraries, mobile home parks, retirement communities, and other places where large groups of people congregate.
The agency requests that volunteers commit to serving between eight and ten hours per month, and anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to participate. Before volunteers can work with veterans, they must first pass a background check, which will not be paid for by the volunteer.
The goal of the program is to equip volunteers with information so that they can help connect veterans, primarily seniors, to their potential earned benefits and resources. #LiveOnKMTRhttps://t.co/c6eglzsJ0W
