First Responder/Reservists Seminar

Beyond the Badge NY and our partners at Forge VFR designed a one-day seminar to address first responders that hold double duty as reservists in the military and the specific challenges they face as they transition from one uniform to the other. At this engaging and interactive event, family members are welcome and encouraged to attend with their first responder! They will hear from engaging speakers, participate in peer-to-peer activities and discussions, and will walk away from this educational experience with the essential tools, skills, and knowledge needed to have a healthy career and life. When we share, we connect, and we hope that you will share your time with us and help destigmatize asking for help in our culture!
