DEPLOY Fellows Program
Diversify and Expand the Pipeline of Leaders of Your military communities
REI DEPLOY Fellows serve for one year in Blue Star Chapter-based or national roles at Blue Star Families while receiving training in MSO/VSO leadership curated by several of our key partners.
Much of their work focuses on bringing awareness to issues military and Veteran families encounter regarding racial equity and inclusion through community engagement and partnerships, improving experiences and increasing representation in community settings across the country through outreach work and programming initiatives, and supporting the programming of the department in which they are embedded. Upon graduating, fellows will continue their work in positions of leadership within the MSO/VSO space.
