Research Foundation of the City University of New York on behalf of Hunter College
Project for Return and Opportunity in Veterans Education (PROVE)
PROVE’s mission is to ensure student veterans on City University of New York (CUNY) campuses have a successful educational journey by aiding them in their transition from the military to a college community. PROVE’s social work interns and experienced field instructors provide both peer assistance and supervised professional counseling support to student veterans. Concurrently the PROVE program trains those social work interns in the specific needs and concerns of the modern-day student veteran and thus increases the military cultural competency of upcoming professional social workers. This NFL-BWF Healthy Lifestyle and Creating Community (HLCC) grant will support the operations of the PROVE program at 10 CUNY campuses throughout the NYC area.
