Would you like to work independently but still have access to a great support team? By joining our team at NROTC, you will earn income AND contribute to a very noble cause " helping veterans who have fallen on hard times. The National Remember Our Troops Campaign is a 501(c)(3) military and veterans charity providing assistance to homeless veterans. We are the face behind the "Cards for Troops" program, which has been proven effective in suicide prevention in both veterans and active military members. NROTC is also proactive in combatting stress and PTSD, helps veterans in need with assistance in expediting claims, and partners with the VA and other organizations at Operation Reveille Stand Downs across the country, where we provide homeless veterans with informational resource cards, hygiene packs, blankets and NROTC Comfort Pillows. During times of volunteer shortages, NROTC hires paid representatives for this fundraising position; however, we will not let you go even if we have a sudden surge or surplus of volunteers. Obviously, we love hiring veterans whenever we can, but being a veteran is not a prerequisite for the position. Currently, we are looking for very motivated, compassionate, independent individuals to serve as Fundraising Event Hosts.
