Hi AmeriCorps Alum!! I need some advice. In a nutshell I want to work with VMFs (veterans, military servicemembers, and their families) enduring mental health challenges from two areas, community organization and advocacy, and peer counseling. AmeriCorps has taught me that capacity building is everything, but the opportunity to serve the community directly is important as well. I'm trying to figure out the best route to take for my masters degree online. If either of those areas are under a different program name that I'm not aware, but you do, than great (not every college has the same program name, but may have similar outcomes). Not sure if public policy/administration, or social work is the route I want to take. Thanks for any advice.
Goals: National Public Health Corps, Dept. of Veteran Affairs, or military non profit organizations (Blue Star Family, etc.)
