What might your VRR look like?
  • Meet Joe Chapter-Member, a member of Chapter #2 and resident of San Diego. He wants to help his fellow veterans by participating in VRR as a Rally Captain. As Rally Captain, Joe will be responsible for motivating and overseeing his team.
  • Joe recruits fellow chapter members and Auxiliary Unit #2 members to become members of his VRR team. He meets with them and they discuss what roles they will play on the Volunteer Recruitment Rally team.
  • A time is chosen for the Volunteer Recruitment Rally. The chosen dates are at least six weeks away.
  • Joe and his team members meet to map out their VRR. They brainstorm over the following items and develop a game plan.
who should be contacted
Who should be contacted?
  • Area DAV Chapters
  • Area DAVA Units
  • DAV Department Service Officers
  • DAV Transportation Coordinators
  • Hospital VAVS Directors
  • Legislators/Political Leaders
  • Media Contacts
  • Local High Schools
  • VA Contacts
  • Other

After Joe and his team map out possible locations and plan out the details with their contacts, they decide what materials they will need.

They consider the venues at which they have scheduled recruitment events, and plan accordingly. For instance, they order plenty of Jesse Brown Youth Memorial info for the high schools. For all of their event venues, they request lots of general information on DAV as well as all the volunteer programs.

Joe makes sure to request some Round To-Its (pictured above) as well. These will be given to those who sign up to volunteer at the rally as a little reminder to stay committed to helping the veterans in their community.

  • Make sure to let Department know what you need six weeks in advance.
