The Delaware Veterans Coalition’s goal is to keep our website current as a source of information on benefits, opportunities, and events for our readers. Check back often. Please note you can sign up for a free update on veteran-related legislation by clicking on the newsletter registration link on the right. You can also submit an application for membership on the left. Membership is open to all honorably-discharged veterans residing in Delaware at only $20 per year. We meet every other month on the 4th Monday of the month, beginning in January of each year.

We also support the Kent County Veterans Memorial Park which tributes Gold Star Mother and Families, those lost in Vietnam, Korea, and the Middle East. The park also contains a POW/MIA Chair of Honor, a War Dog memorial and a UH-1 “Huey” Dustoff helicopter perched on an 18-foot stand. The park is financed through the sale of memorial bricks. If you wish to honor a family member or loved one who served, buy a brick to support the memorials, visit the Support the Memorials page.

If you are applying to any position on, take the time to attend this excellent workshop to learn how to navigate the federal application process, create a winning resume and become the BEST QUALIFIED applicant.

We are entering the third session of an exciting program for youth in Delaware to participate in:
The Capital Guardian Youth Challenge Academy in Laurel, MD.  

As part of this initiative we have a mentor component in which anyone may serve as mentors over the 5-1/2 month Residential Phase and the 12-month Post Residential Phase (17-1/2 months total). All mentors participate in a 4-hour mentor training conducted by the Capital Guardian Youth Challenge Academy staff.

We are currently seeking 15 mentors (possibly more) for the next class which will start in July 2017. The applicants will need mentors to encourage and support them during the residential phase and  upon completion of the Youth ChalleNGe program. They will have the opportunity to pursue a college degree, seek employment or join the military.

We hope that you will consider mentoring a cadet. Click the button below to download the mentor application packet for your reference. All mentors are required to get a DC background check.
