Program 1

Reunion

In 2012, Tee It Up for the Troops launched a new veterans outreach initiative entitled “Reunion.” The concept of this unique program is to reunite wounded, ill or injured service members who had been separated due to battlefield injuries, changes in rehabilitation status, or for other reasons beyond their control. The objective is that through these reunions, participating veterans can dramatically enhance their transition process into productive and fulfilling civilian lifestyles.

Hosted in a secure and supportive environment, and staged around the rehabilitative aspects of the game of golf, participants at Reunion can not only reconnect with those who are most trusted, but also develop new relationships and support networks to help them “heal, transition, grow, and thrive.” Throughout Reunion, these wounded warriors enjoy therapeutic time on the golf course and also participate in a variety of helpful sessions to support a healthy lifestyle, including:
•Breakout sessions for veterans to share triumphs, challenges and the latest updates on available support networks and services
•Access to counseling support for employment, substance abuse, PTS and other valued services
•Activities specifically designed for warrior caregivers for support, idea sharing and discussions on various services available for their own well-being as well as their warriors
•Strategy sessions with key partners to develop even better programs to meet the growing needs of America’s veterans
•And much more.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Increase our numbers of veterans and their families that we can help restore their sense of self, family and hope. Reunite more veterans. Facilitate more golf events and involve more veterans. Enhance our partnerships with Fisher House, Hope for the Warriors and Disabled Sports USA.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Use golf as our primary tool in our approach is to facilitate and serve:
    •provide a “Tournament in a Box" event playbook and tournament coordination support to empower local chapters and volunteers.
    •impact on not only individual veterans and their families, but on organizations that are helping those individuals. More golf events and more media.
    •maintain our governance – less than 14% of our proceeds goes to organizational overhead.

  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Support of many volunteers, sponsors and partners in increasing # of golf events held throughout the year and throughout the US.
    Staff of 3 1/4 people can accomplish much with volunteer support!
    Social media; newsletters, networking and contacts, etc.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Less than 14% goes to organizational overhead. Audits and financial reports are maintained for each event. Board meetings are held every other month to check on financials, needs, etc. Reviews and comparisons are evaluated to better business practices.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
