Operation VetBuild is a veteran to veteran peer support program that is run through the RCL OSI Special Section commonly known as BSL Legion OSI and is hosted in Legion Branches.
Our objective is to incorporate hobby and in this case, plastic scale model building as a means of assisting veterans alleviate the symptoms commonly associated with OSIs and PTSD. The incorporation of hobby in a social atmosphere will give veterans the opportunity to meet other veterans in their area while working through their projects to provide mutual support and comradeship. This is a peer support program first and model building is simply the medium.
This initiative begins on Saturday June 15th 1– 4 pm, at Kingsway Legion located at 14339 50th Street, Edmonton, and will run the 3rd Sat of the month.
The Program Leader(s) must be a veteran, experienced in model building and ideally have the mental health first aid course.
Participants: Must be a veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces or its Allies, be a client of VAC or the Allied equivalent, Legion member, RCMP, or be on a fixed income as a result of retirement.
They will be encouraged to work at their own pace and all kits and equipment will be supplied for free.
