Partner Level One

As a We Honor Veterans Partner, there are four levels your organization can achieve.

 
Partner Level One: Provide Veteran-centric education for staff and volunteers, and identify patients with military experience.

    staff.

2. Complete and document completed ‘required’ activities on the Partner Level One Activity Report.
3. Submit Level One Activity Report and email per instructions on the form. 
4. Upon receipt and approval of the Partner Level One Activity Report, WHV will:

        a.  Email a 'WHV Level One Certificate of Recognition'
        b.  Provide your organization WHV logo (Level One) 
        c.  Add your organization's name to the WHV Partner Directory

WHV Partner Level One may immediately begin working on Partner Level Two activities.
