During our current time you don't know who to trust and are not sure where your money is going. This is a group you can trust who does great work and is dedicated to make a difference in the world. I wish there were more organizations like IAHV. Making positive changes in the lives of our youth today, Veterans, people in need, the list goes on.....

I have served as the West Coast Regional Director of YES! for Schools: an educational and youth development initiative of IAHV. The dedication and passion of the staff and volunteers to the organization vision, and commitment to service is commendable. One of the most inspiration and transformational years of my life was working for IAHV.

Working for IAHV is the most wonderful and life-changing experience for me. I've been working with IAHV for the past 3 years. I had an opportunity to grow and help others to grow as well. Working with youth become something I want to continue doing for the rest of my life. When I signed up with IAHV in 2010, I had no clue what turn my life would take, I knew teaching YES was one of the aspects and it's been the most rewarding teaching youth how to take care of their emotions and well being and recently I had a chance to work with inmates teaching IAHV Prison SMART at Chicago Cook County. WOW, that blew my mind, how much people are in need to learn IAHV programs.
