The Department of Veterans Affairs DME Team partnered with VA’s Voluntary Service (VAVS) to create a virtual volunteer program that was initially designed for former DME Interns. It is now open to any college student across the country who would like the opportunity to volunteer.

If a prospective volunteer is interested in joining the program, they will need to request and accept an offer, and then begin the program after completing onboarding with the VAVS office.
