VETERANS IDENTIFY THEIR INDIVIDUAL CHALLENGES

As with all of our programs, CAMVETS starts with the needs of our veterans (or Challenge Knowers), empowering them to tell us what they need and then to be a part of making the solution.

2- TEAMS OF EXPERTS COME TOGETHER TO BUILD SOLUTIONS

Next we put the experts to work (or Solution Makers) during a 3-day intensive make-a-thon (a making marathon!) to create innovative solutions that directly address the need at hand.

3- A SOLUTION FOR ONE CAN BECOME A SOLUTION FOR MANY

Following each event, we work with our Challenge Teams and strategic partners to develop viable solutions into products and services that can help veterans and others facing similar challenges.

history


CAMVETS grew out of our partnership with Israeli nonprofit, Restart, on their flagship program called Makers For Heroes. Challenge America led the U.S. delegation to the 2018 Makers For Heroes in Tel Aviv, Israel and witnessed the miraculous solutions and transformative experience that came out of it for our veterans and everyone involved. We were so inspired that we decided right then and there that we needed to bring it back to the U.S. And so CAMVETS was born.
