START VOLUNTEERING TODAY
Becoming a Paralyzed Veterans volunteer has never been easier. Each chapter offers its own volunteer program with a variety of opportunities to contribute, plus you can commit to as many hours as you choose. Find the PVA chapter near you.
VETERANS ADMINISTRATION VOLUNTARY SERVICE PROGRAM (VAVS)
Another avenue for volunteering is through your local Veterans Administration (VA). Contact the Department of Veterans Affairs facility nearest you and ask for Voluntary Service. Tell their staff of your interest in becoming a VAVS Volunteer. The staff will take care of everything else including your interview, orientation, and assignment!
You are still assisting Paralyzed Veterans – when you register with the VA, you can let them know that you are volunteering your time in the name of Paralyzed Veterans of America.
