“Beyond The Welcome Home” Summit Explained
We've been telling you about the promising Democracy 2.0 Summit that ServiceNation: Mission Serve is helping Mobilize.Org organize April 1-3 in Los Angeles. ServiceNation: Mission Serve Director Ross Cohen has just filmed a short video to offer his take on the meaning and importance of "Beyond The Welcome Home."
The aim of "Beyond The Welcome Home" is to bring interested Millennial Veterans together to brainstorm smart and creative ideas that will help veterans make a smooth, rewarding and meaningful transition back to civilian life. (If you are a Millennial vet, or know a Millennial vet who might be interested, the application for funding to attend the Summit is here).
Here's how Mobilize describes "Beyond The Welcome Home":
If you are a veteran between the ages of 18 and 34, with an idea on how to improve your community, country, or your installation, Mobilize.org wants to hear from you.
We invite you to join us for "Beyond the Welcome Home," in Los Angeles, CA, April 1-3, where you'll work with a group of your peers to develop solutions that address challenges facing young veterans.
The top ideas, voted on by all "Beyond the Welcome Home" participants, will receive a share of $25,000, expert advice and support from veterans, Mobilize.org and its partners to implement their projects back home. Participants will also have the chance to appear on MTV.
