Each National Direct member will work to develop or expand community wide workforce readiness services for veterans. They will recruit, train, and support veteran volunteer leaders who will support ongoing service efforts, veteran community engagement and veteran service. In turn, each volunteer leader will support new or expanded year-round veteran-serving programs and projects in their communities. The Veteran Leader Corps is a national service program that engages veterans as AmeriCorps members to support the needs of newly separated veterans. The program focuses specifically on providing employment support services and community engagement opportunities for veterans. An added aspect of the program is that many veterans, military spouses, and military kids are engaged as volunteers in their community.
