The USGBC Florida Gulf Coast Chapter is proud to be participating in the Green Veterans Group initiative. The Green Veterans program is dedicated to helping our nation's heroes learn about sustainable building and green living, while at the same time helping ease the hardship of military-to-civilian transition. By empowering Veterans to be volunteer leaders in their communities, the program's goals are to nurture opportunities for continuing education, networking, employment, corporate engagement and green entrepreneurship.

Programs

Local Green Veterans Group programs are diverse and productive. Amongst other topics and activities, we have discussed the realities of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the role of therapeutic gardens and building design on stress reduction and PTSD treatment. We have collaborated with local nonprofits to collect furniture for Veterans, and also pulled together a team to repair a Veteran's home. We have gathered socially to grow our ranks and discuss our mission, including a recent BBQ that was great fun and that drew representatives from more than two dozen organizations!
