Spring is here and that means a time for new beginnings. So, the new Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program website is live at www.yellowribbon.mil. The upgrade was conducted to improve access to vital information and resources supporting National Guard and Reserve Service members, their families, and YRRP support staff.
The website upgrade now features a streamlined and easy-to-navigate design that accommodates the growing use of mobile devices and tablets. Service members and their families can now easily find and register for YRRP events, as well as access a large catalog of virtual courses, news, information, and resources.
The site also offers service members and their families the chance to connect with a variety of military-related service providers, including YRRP staff and program coordinators who can assist them with event registration and additional resources.
“Our goal is to connect Guardsmen and Reservists with information they can use to address whatever challenges they face,” said Peter Weeks, YRRP’s Director. “Wherever they may be in the deployment-cycle—whether they’re about to leave or have come back and are reintegrating into their communities—YRRP is here to provide the support they need.”
The upgrade was coordinated in partnership with the Reserve Components and Joint Knowledge Online, a Department of Defense organization that provides access to online joint training and information resources.
Website visitors can also subscribe using their e-mail to stay connected with YRRP and the Guard and Reserve Support Network, a partnership of programs comprised of YRRP, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, Hero2Hired, and Service Member and Family Readiness.
