For Veteran Providers


Each program, organization, and agency plays an important role in a service member’s post military experience. Working with other veteran providers and organizations is important to us. In the past, a large number of our applications came from other veteran providers and veteran organizations. Below you will find some information about our program you may find helpful.

HOW TO BE INVOLVED

  • Refer a veteran by sending them our application or passing on our information. You can request paper copies of our schedule from us or download our 2016 schedule here.
  • Schedule a call or virtual inservice with our staff and yours to learn more
  • Bring a group of veterans to the No Barriers Summit. You can learn more about the Summit here.

WHY THE OUTDOORS?

Since day one, we have found the outdoors to be a powerful place for veterans to connect with a new team, work towards a new mission together (whether navigating a trail, summiting a peak, or ascending a rock wall), and find a place to reflect on their past, present and future in an environment away from the day-to-day. This environment, and the inherent challenges it brings creates the opportunity for growth and reflection.

WHAT ASSISTANCE DO VETERANS RECEIVE?

We are committed to providing more than a trip. Our process begins with a careful application and selection process. Once a team member is selected for an experience or expedition, they have a specific contact at our organization that will walk them through the prep process, step by step. This includes logistics prep, mental preparedness and coordinating any specific accommodations. Our Expeditions Leaders are trained specifically to work with veterans and manage risk. Before an expedition, our leaders receive all the necessary information about the incoming team. After an expedition, our team provides ongoing support for our alumni. This includes follow up conversations as needed about experiences on the expedition, or new ideas it sparked, as well as finding ways for alumni to attend future No Barriers events. You can read briefly about our phases here.  Our trips are offered at no cost, this includes all travel and the opportunity to borrow gear.

ELIGIBILITY

Our expeditions are open to veterans with service connected disabilities. We serve veterans from all branches of the service and can accommodate veterans with a wide range of disabilities including but not limited to visual impairment, amputation, PTSD, TBI, and severe burns. Specific questions about eligibility or disability can be directed to warriors@nobarriersusa.org.
