Exiting the military to return to civilian life can be daunting and challenging. Opportunities are said to be endless but often are challenging to navigate in any field of work.
Our mission at the Dauntless Veteran Foundation (DVF) is to train and equip veterans to translate their talents from the field to the farm. Simply put we seek to create a network of interdependent and self-sufficient veteran farms practicing sustainable agriculture through community-based education and production.
Through our network of interdependent farms, we will provide veterans interested in agriculture the necessary experience to qualify for their own first-time farmer loan. We will also offer job placement opportunities with partners that exist throughout the entire agriculture supply chain. Perhaps a veteran finds out that field farming is not for them – no problem, there are plenty of Agricultural Occupational Specialties to choose from. From sales to machinery, to value-added production, the options are far and wide!
DVF programs and resources will promote pro-social behavior, strengthen relationships and interpersonal skills, foster strong interpersonal awareness, and help reintegrate veterans into their community. Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual and community responsibility be re-established. This will help veterans commit to a path to a self-sufficient life with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
