How to Get Involved
Now that you know more about our organization, what should you do next?
Whether or not you're a student and whether or not you're in school,
you can still get involved!
If you're a student and would like to start a new USVH chapter at your school
but don't know how, contact our National Recruitment Director,
Leslie Johnson. She will guide you through
the steps of establishing a chapter, including:
- Finding a VA near you
- Contacting that VA regarding volunteer need
- Advertising/recruiting volunteers
- Establishing a Board to organize carpools and activities
After creating a new chapter, you will be in close contact with National
Board members, keeping one another updated on chapter progress and
suggesting ways to improve USVH's local and national program.
To get an idea of a local chapter's current structure and activites,
please see the Stanford Chapter website.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our National
Recruitment Director (Leslie Johnson)
or any National Board member.
If you're not a student, you can still get involved with veteran health care!
Here are some ways on how:
- Visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website
and learn more about veteran-related programs and news.
- Find out which VA facility is nearest you
Contact them and see if they would like a new volunteer!
- Visit your local library and see what opportunities to volunteer
