TEAM RUBICONLos Angeles, California
Team Rubicon serves communities by mobilizing veterans to continue their service, leveraging their skills and experience to help people prepare, respond, and recover from disasters and humanitarian crises.
Team Rubicon is a veteran-led disaster relief organization. Many veterans, after fighting over a decade of war, are returning home and finding it difficult to transition from military to civilian life. Meanwhile, there is a definite gap in traditional disaster relief and a tangible need for experienced volunteers.
Team Rubicon pairs the skills and experiences that veterans learned in the military (things like emergency medicine, risk mitigation, decisive leadership, small-unit tactics) with first-responders and disaster relief professionals. We send these teams across the United States and the world, helping communities recover from natural disasters or humanitarian crises.
