The National Veterans Foundation provides education and training for veterans…by veterans.
Topics and Speakers — Community Education
Our speakers are veterans who share their own stories of challenge and triumph during, and especially after, combat. Presentations illustrate how every soldier’s journey home is a long process affecting the lives not only of those who experience war directly, but also the families, employers, and communities they must reconnect with upon coming home.
Speakers discuss common reactions to violence, trauma and extreme stress, as well as strategies for coping and resolution.
Related topics include:
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Secondary Trauma
- Alcoholism and Drug Abuse
- Gang Affiliation
- Social Unrest and Alienation
For young people, these presentations not only give a true picture of the effects of violence, but challenge them to seek effective ways to deal with life’s difficulties. In addition, veterans who serve as speakers find that sharing their experiences helps further their own healing process.
