Become a Discussion Participant

Help us work toward building a healthier veteran community!
We are currently seeking discussion participants for a new program The Art of Reintegration: Veterans and the Silences of War. The discussions will be a safe and welcoming space for veterans and non-veterans alike to examine multiple points of view where everyone is respected.
Please consider applying if you:
  • Want to speak openly and share your unique perspectives and experiences
  • Want to help build a healthier veteran community
  • Are a veteran/service member or have a veteran in your family
Applicants must commit to 5 of the 7 monthly discussions in order to be considered. Discussions will take place monthly at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania (mostly on Wednesdays and/or other weekdays in the evening).
To apply, please send a brief paragraph to indicating the following by September 5:

1.     Why you are interested in these discussions
2.     What you bring to the table
3.     What you hope to get out of the experience
4.     Your connection (if any) to the veteran community: any military experience and/or perspectives as a family member of a service member, or any other experiences working with veterans/service members

We will provide refreshments as well as a small stipend to cover transportation/childcare. Sessions will take place on September 18, October 18, and November 7. After a December break, sessions will begin again in January, with dates determined in collaboration with participants.
