Every semester, veterans and other volunteers with the Whatcom Peace & Justice Center (WPJC) visit high schools in Whatcom County to offer information on the realities of war, helping youth fact-check the promises of military recruiters.
We also talk about:
- Becoming a conscientious objector
- Ways to earn money for college other than the GI Bill
- Community service programs that pay stipends
- Educational opportunities
This training will prepare you to table with WPJC. We'll go over responses to the most common questions and review our key handouts. You can browse the center's library and borrow related books, as well as meet returning volunteers and hear about their experiences.
Afterward, stick around from 3-4 p.m. for a button-making party to restock our button baskets for fall tabling.
AMS is coordinated by Rowan Peterson. If you want to volunteer but can't make this training, please email Rowan at peterson.rowan at gmail.com.
