Service Together Intern

Description: PROGRAM SUMMARY A powerful form of community building and social healing, Service Together (ST) bridges the gap between veterans and civilians by helping those who served transition back to civilian life, and providing a place for civilians to step forward in new and responsible engagement with veterans. ST addresses the need both civilians and veterans have for relationship, resiliency and attention to the moral struggles and emotional consequences that war evokes. It develops and implements events that are life-altering for those who attend, and fosters healing for broader communities brought together through the process. Events include panel discussions, dialogues, and visits to iconic sites (Ground Zero), and local service projects, educational involvements for military cultural competency and advocacy strategies for veterans’ benefits and opportunities for reintegration into civilian life. Artistic expressions (drama, music and poetry) are woven throughout the events. As troops deployed for Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom have returned home, while many of our service personnel incorporate their deployment into positive social and vocational assets, others bring back a host of traumatic experiences manifested in unresolved wounds of war—seen and unseen. Civilians also carry the burdens of war’s trauma, though often this is overlooked. Disconnection from the warrior community, apathy, denial of shared responsibility, and the inability to appropriately talk with or provide support for returning military personnel are realities that keep our society from being healthy and whole. Both veterans and civilians are critical to the long-term solution to social reintegration, and holding a Service Together program is a direct way for communities to begin the process.
