Building a sustaianble future with veteran leadership.
The Veterans Green Bus Project:
Addresses the largest problem disaster relief organisations face when responding to natural or man made disasters.
Transportation, fuel, electricity and communications.
With fuel costs at a premium, $3.00 + - per gallon average nation wide, getting volunteers to and from disaster zones hinders effective volunteer disaster response capabilities.
What makes this problem worse during disasters is the fact that access to traditional fuel sources. Closed for the lack of power or are rationing where they are do and the demand is the greatest
The Veterans Green Bus Project attacks these issues head on with a strategic plan to increase access and reduces the costs of fuel for transportation and emergency power that provides for our satellite communications systems to work independently of the grid.

YMCA and Sierra Club Military Outdoors (SCMO) are working together to improve the lives of veterans, service members, and their families through connections with the outdoors and to inspire members of the military and veteran community to become outspoken champions for environmental conservation and justice within their local communities.
SCMO envisions a world in which all veterans, service members, and military families have the opportunity to benefit from the healing powers of being outdoors. Our team was humbled to play a large part in the recent passage of two bipartisan acts aimed at breaking down barriers to accessing public lands for veterans: New York state’s Outdoor Rx Act, and working with the YMCA team, the Accelerating Veterans Recovery Outdoors Act.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the YMCA and SCMO team are launching a virtual outings program for veterans, military service members, and their families. Virtual outings - part wilderness adventure, part community building - begin with a virtual group trailhead talk, are followed by an individual wilderness adventure, and conclude with a virtual group campfire.
If you are a YMCA or SC staff member who’ll be leading this programming or a dedicated volunteer or community member interested in getting involved, this training is for you! Please visit here to learn more and to register for the first in a series of virtual training sessions led by the SCMO team that will help prepare you to serve as a virtual outings leader for veterans, service members, and military family members in your local community.
