BENEFITING: Proteus Academy
Please help Proteus Academy raise enough money to fully fund our yearly programs - Which train, mentor and support future, current and past Military personal and families.
Proteus Academy, Inc. prepares future elite warriors for the rigors of training and empowers military families by providing a support network of resources, activities, and mentorship to help them thrive with the additional challenges faced by family member deployment, training and shifting base assignments.
There are many systems in place to assist military Veterans post-service, from Government Programs to National Non-Profits. What we do find lacking, however, is a community-based platform that provides a social support system for active duty military families who face an entirely different set of circumstances than most civilians. Not only are these parents faced with raising a family, they are required to do so in an ever-changing environment away from immediate family, often with spouses deployed for significant periods of time. All family members are affected as well - while highly adaptable, children of military families must seek out new friends, adjust to new schools, and delay childhood milestones. Proteus Academy seeks to provide a critical platform where military families have an immediate and effective support network of resources, activities, and mentorship in order to fully function and thrive.
