Team RWB PROGRAMS
CHAPTER & COMMUNITY PROGRAMS
Our chapters deliver consistent, local opportunities for veterans and the community to connect through physical and social activity. They host regular fitness activities, social gatherings, and community service events, and facilitate building strong local connections with other members and the community.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
The Eagle Leadership Development Program is designed to educate, train, and inspire Eagle Leaders to enrich Veteran’s lives in their local communities with the ultimate goal of building the most professional and effective volunteer-led organization in the country.

A Unique Veteran Interaction (UVI) occurs whenever a member who is veteran physically interacts with our organization. This typically happens via attendance at local, regional, or national event.
A Unique Civilian Interaction (UCI) occurs whenever a member who is a civilian physically interacts with our organization. This could happen via attendance at local, regional, or national event.
A Team RWB Event is scheduled and planned by local leaders, then executed in such a way that we can ensure a consistent, positive experience for our members.

We know that engaging and connecting with veterans is often the most critical step to accessing resources, finding new ways to lead, and ultimately making a smooth transition. One of the investments in Team RWB that is helping us achieve our mission is our Leadership Development Program (LDP) that produces our Veteran Athletic and Leadership Camps (ALC).
Team RWB ALCs are tremendous opportunities for veterans to learn a new sport/activity that they can take home to their local chapter in a leadership capacity, or as a highly active community member. They are led and coached by world-class athletes and experts and are designed to inspire veterans to commit to their own health and fitness. Our camps are an investment in the member, the organization, and the community. The goal is for every camp attendee to possess the tools and motivation to return home and make a positive impact in their chapter and local community.
VETERAN ATHLETIC & LEADERSHIP CAMP GOALS
Members learn a new sport and receive leadership development training.
Members are motivated and inspired to use their knowledge at the chapter and community level in a leadership capacity.
Members feel empowerment in their health, fitness, and the reintegration process.
VETERAN ATHLETIC & LEADERSHIP CAMPS
The ALCs are an investment in our members and our organization. Much is given, and much is expected in return. Two surveys are given out at the end of each camp to measure impact. The first survey is given within the first two weeks after an athlete returns home—the goal being to measure knowledge gained while at camp. The second survey is administered 2–3 months after camp and measures behavior change in the athletes.
Our athletic camps began in 2012, when 80 athletes attended our inaugural triathlon and trail running camps. During this time, Team RWB had approximately 5,000 members and less than ten chapters. In 2013, our athletic camps became an official program, and over 250 athletes attended six camps dispersed across the country. Our camps included yoga, trail running, triathlon, rock climbing, hiking, and functional fitness. As we moved into 2015 we expanded the ALCs to a regional model to increase our reach to veteran and civilian members in their local geographies.
