FUNDED March 11 2019 – Thank You!
Help train veterans to provide disaster response.
Rather than focusing on vocational training that attempts to teach new job skills, Team Rubicon repurposes veterans’ existing skills – emergency medicine, risk assessment and mitigation, teamwork and decisive leadership – to solve another need: more effective disaster response.
Following each disaster, people around the globe rally to donate money, food and supplies, but organizations don’t always have the volunteers or expertise to put these resources into action. Since natural disasters present many of the same complications as a combat zone, such as unstable populations and limited resources, Team Rubicon steps into this vacuum, uniting military veterans with experienced medical professionals to provide targeted and effective first response in crisis situations.
Through Team Rubicon’s Clay Hunt Fellowship, veterans receive training in business and nonprofit administration while applying their specialized skills to help others in need. Upon completion of the program, these vets leave equipped with the tools to secure meaningful employment or to seek further education. Your donation simultaneously addresses two distinct problems, providing disaster relief and veteran support.
Team Rubicon’s primary mission is to provide disaster relief between the moment a disaster happens and the point at which conventional aid organizations respond. This “gap” is the crucial window following a disaster when victims have traditionally been without outside aid. Since its creation in January 2010, Team Rubicon has impacted thousands of lives — in Haiti, Chile, Burma, Pakistan, Sudan, and here at home, in Vermont, Maryland, Missouri, and Alabama, reaching victims outside the scope of traditional aid organizations.
