VA’s Office of Public Affairs' Digital Media Engagement (DME) team is expanding its Virtual Volunteer program to invite new volunteers to help create content that honors Veterans and helps them learn more about their benefits. The Virtual Volunteer program will be open to currently enrolled college students and college graduates who have skills in various forms of digital content creation, social media management and accessibility.
Brooke Jackowski, 17, has dedicated the past 5 years to serving Veterans at the Erie VA Medical Center. She will receive a $20,000 scholarship for tuition, fees, and books at the college of her choice.
Since the start of the pandemic, over 1,000 VA staff have volunteered for more than 3,700 deployments to support Veterans and civilians in the most hard-hit areas of the country in response to COVID-19.
