"My name is Mariam and my team at the Department of Veteran Affairs is working on building a new GI Bill School Feedback tool and we need Veterans to help us with testing. We want to do usability testing with Veterans to make sure the tool is easy to use and clear to understand. The sessions are 45 minutes long and can be done online or in person in the D.C. area. Can you help us find 3-5 Veterans who can help us? Appreciate the help in advance"

Character Does Matter | The Travis Manion Foundation

ATTENTION:

CONGRATULATIONS to all of those who graduated this past weekend!

The Travis Manion Foundation is looking for Veteran mentors for their 'Character Does Matter Leadership Course' at Robinson Secondary School, (Fairfax, VA). They have run several leadership courses for Philadelphia, San Diego, and NYC high school students, and this is their 1st in the DC area. The current course is 9 sessions over 9 weeks.

They are looking for Post-9/11 era Vets willing to work with about 20 students on a once-weekly basis. They don't expect each Vet to be able to attend every session, but ideally each Vet could attend at least 7.

Each week they examine leadership through a different leadership mantra (i.e. "When in Charge, BE in Charge" or "In the Absence of Leadership, Create Leadership"), which is also connected to a corresponding value such as Personal Courage, Integrity, or Resilience.

Sessions at Robinson are held Mondays from 3:00 - 4:15 pm
Their buses depart at 4:30 pm to head home.

CONNECTING VETERANS & SURVIVORS WITH THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS The Character Does Matter Program (CDM), presented by Johnson & Johnson, INSPIRES

ATTENTION:

Students with Military Experience Needed to Lead UMD-Smithsonian Program for Veterans

Ø Learn how to effectively lead classroom discussions.

Ø $2500 stipend.

Ø Time commitment: Two 8-hour days of training at University of Maryland (June 11-12, 2016), plus four weekends of discussion program facilitation - 2 in Fall 2016, 2 in Spring 2017 semester.



Dr. Marian Moser Jones, a historian in the Department of Family Science at the University of Maryland College Park, and Curators Margaret Vining and Bart Hacker of the Division of Armed Forces History at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, are recruiting students who are U.S. military veterans or who are currently serving in the U.S. military not on active duty, to serve as paid discussion leaders/facilitators for an innovative program, “100 Years of American Women in Uniform”. This program will take place on the University of Maryland College Park campus and at the Smithsonian NMAH and other area museums in the Washington, D.C. area, and will be open to participation by all veterans. Participants will discuss U.S. women’s experiences as members of the military through readings from those who served in the war zones during World War I and OIF/OEF - the two periods of conflict that have bracketed 100 years of women’s formal participation in the U.S. military - and through behind-the-scenes tours of the Smithsonian collections and other museum collections related to women’s service in these wars. Undergraduate students enrolled at UMD who participate will be able to receive course credit. This program is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Dialogues on the Experience of War grant program.

We welcome applications from veterans or current service members of any gender, with experience in any rank or branch of the U.S. military. We aim to recruit a diverse group of discussion leaders in compliance with UMD’s policy barring discrimination with regard to “race, color, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, marital status, age, national origin, political affiliation, physical or mental disability, religion, protected veteran status, genetic information, or any other legally protected status.”

The qualifications for a discussion leader include:

Ø U.S. military service with an honorable discharge or current U.S. military service;

Ø Currently enrolled as a graduate student or upper-level undergraduate at an accredited university;

Ø Substantial coursework in History, Literature, or a related humanistic or social science discipline;

Ø Strong interpersonal skills;

Ø Availability for 8-hour days on five weekends including June 11-12, 2016;

Ø One written recommendation from a professor.



How to apply: All inquiries, and applications with cover letter, resume, and proof of military service, should be sent to Dr. Marian Moser Jones [email protected] (ph. 301-405-8940) or at the address below. Professors should send one-page recommendations to the same name and address. DEADLINE IS MAY 20 BUT APPLICATIONS WILL BE REVIEWED ON A ROLLING BASIS.
