October 2009 – Dare Mighty Things, in partnership with Goldbelt Wolf of Alexandria, VA, has been awarded a $1.5 million Federal contract to design a national training program to support the families of National Guardsmen and Reservists. The National Guard wants to establish an approach that will ensure that their training programs are developed in an effective and efficient manner to match a variety of needs in an ever-changing operational environment. Dare Mighty Things (DMT) and Goldbelt Wolf (GBW) have partnered to create a team of highly qualified and experienced analysts and program designers for this endeavor.
David Van Patten, president of Dare Mighty Things, said, “We are very excited to expand our work with the National Guard, an agency with whom we have worked for several years. This is an important initiative that will significantly enhance the lives of National Guard familes.” DMT currently designs programs and provides training for the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe program (www.ngycp.org), a national program that has graduated nearly 100,000 high school dropouts.
The National Guard Bureau aims to enhance quality of life for National Guard members, their families, and the communities in which they live. They establish and facilitate ongoing communication, involvement, support, and recognition between National Guard families and the National Guard in a partnership that promotes the best in both.
