Veterans 360 works with recent combat veterans, helping them develop professional and interpersonal skills as they reintegrate into civilian life. Structured daily activities and projects are based around four goals: engagement, healing, education, and employment. When veterans first begin the program, they receive holistic posttraumatic-stress-disorder treatments that can include mentorships and therapy. Through engaging activities, they can learn about wind turbines, help maintain children’s playgrounds, and learn how to surf. Educational programs, meanwhile, help participants prepare for a return to the classroom or provide vocational training for specific careers. Ultimately, veterans can earn certifications in trade skills and work with mentors to find jobs.
