Virtual Vets Connect


Virtual Vets Connect uses technology to connect veterans in assisted-living facilities with EKU student volunteers. 

All volunteers take part in a training developed alongside EKU faculty and community members with expertise in Psychology, Social Work, Occupational Science, and Therapeutic Recreation. They gain immeasurable amounts of knowledge about  veterans from different eras while providing a much-needed social experience.
