Training for Youth Connected Volunteers

Military children are resilient, but they also face several unique challenges like frequent relocation, family separation, and uncertainty. This course will help volunteers understand several typical presentations of anxiety and fatigue in military children, and describes the two factors children need to thrive emotionally, socially, and intellectually. Join Lola, the newest volunteer at Sunshine Daycare, as she learns how to better support Jett, a military child, by asking questions, establishing a relationship, and building trust.

Advanced De-escalation Technique for Volunteers

As a volunteer, nearly all your interactions with Veterans will be overwhelmingly positive. However, there might be times when you need guidance to help define and identify agitation, tools and techniques for de-escalation, and tips for managing interactions. The techniques presented in this course are not specific to Veterans, but can be used if you find yourself in any situation that may benefit from de-escalation.
