A Celebration of Service Events
A Celebration of Service Community Project
Working with City Year and other partners, we invited military leaders, conference attendees, and local students to roll up their sleeves to work side-by-side with veterans on a community project in Washington, D.C.
National Day of Training: Educating the Next Generation of Mental Health Professionals about Military Mental Health
Our all-day conference educated the next generation of mental health professionals on topics such as the use of technology to support those who serve and their families, nontraditional forms of healing and the effect of war on children of those who serve.
The conference was live streamed to universities and colleges nationwide and offered all participants (virtual and otherwise) the opportunity to join the Q&As following the panel discussions.
A Celebration of Service VIP Reception and Performance at Studio Theatre
Our three days of events culminated with a reception and performance of Quiara Alegría Hudes' Pulitzer Prize–winning play Water by the Spoonful. During our VIP reception, we honored U.S. Senator Richard Burr, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow and USMC veteran Brendan O’Toole with the Give an Hour Celebration of Service Award.
