Veterans are dealing with disorders like PTSD, and challenges reintegrating back into society. They are also challenged with familiarizing themselves with today's technology and getting up to speed with civilian employment practices. Everyday People is an organization that is passionate about improving their reception and making a positive difference in their lives. The below are some of the concepts that Everyday People would like to facilitate, and and working with humanitarian organizations across the valley to establish;
· Promoting Community service & Involvement by organizing a wide proximity of community contribution opportunities; centric to veteran communities where possible. These opportunities can be presented to organizations and its members that offer 1 work day per quarter for community service. This initiative will empower these individuals to participate more if they have more choices on how they want to give their time and more freedom to work in any community they would like to impact – including their own communities.
· Coordinating charity resources and partners through collaborative relationships with mutual organizations that have interest in giving back to the communities and to veterans. Will establish a distribution network to provide the ability to channel these resources directly to the community and to veterans.
· Provide Physical Fitness and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Training for veteran and civilian PTSD & other disorders that would benefit from the physical and mental training involved in Martial Arts. The practice of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu specifically has been tied to medical study that suggests that this training is therapeutic for PTSD and rehabilitative to patients that suffer from it.
· Facilitate Technology training to ensure that veterans and civilians have the fundamental operating skills that today’s technology world requires. Training includes instruction and curriculum on operating systems, data management, networking and social networking, word processing and spreadsheets, and email management – all aligned with teaching the user how to effectively leverage technology in today’s societal norms.
Why not put more resources into those that answered the call - we need to answer the call for them and build a place that they can flourish. Please sign my petition and let's see what we can get done.
