Train, Teach & Transform
Train, Teach & Transform is a program made possible by grants from partners such as the Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF), the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF), and local businesses in our key regions.
Train, Teach & Transform is a two-fold initiative: 1) a fellowship program for veterans and military/veteran spouses who are seeking to become Certified Warriors at Ease Teachers and empowered leaders in their communities, and 2) community outreach (ongoing yoga classes, wellness workshops, and retreats) in key regions.
The overall focus of Train, Teach & Transform is to:
1) Provide education and leader development opportunities for veterans as well as military/veteran spouses.
2) Provide complementary and integrative therapies that support rehabilitation, recovery, and resiliency in order to improve quality of life in veteran and military communities
Our key regions currently include Texas, Florida, Washington D.C., North Carolina, Hawaii and Tennessee. We look to expand our programs to other areas where, like these active duty military reside and/or there are large populations of veterans.
“The Bob Woodruff Foundation is thrilled to partner with Warriors at Ease. Our investment underscores the need for, and merit of, alternative therapies, customized to the military veteran population, and employed in partnership with the DoD and VA.”
