Review for The National Military Family Association, Alexandria, VA, USA
The National Military Family Association is a wonderful support for the military families. I was a recipient of the scholarship award in 2004 for spouses and had made good use of the money towards my doctoral degree in Education. I was also recognized for my previous community work by the Association in 2003 so I decided to give back as a Volunteer . I have been a Volunteer for the Association since Feb 2010 and have found the experience to be rewarding. I meet military families and people who truly want to assist the military community constantly. With the support of my regional coordinator and the headquarters team, I am able to advocate for the needs of our military families through education and information gathering. There are lots of opportunities to volunteer. I enjoyed my first year as a volunteer as I was able to train with other volunteers from different regions, visit an Operation Purple Camp and spent some time with military childrem, represent the Association at different military events/functions, attempt to recruit new volunteers, work with other volunteers, learn new things through webinar trainings, be abreast of military issues through informational emails and newsletters. I enjoy being a volunteer because I feel valued and supported.
