NMCRS Volunteer program
While the NMCRS volunteers help people in need, they also have opportunities to make new friends, develop new skills, and share talents in a variety of fields. Some of these include budget for baby counseling, client greeting, casework, public speaking, and volunteer management. Volunteers can also help in office administration, publicity, or work in the Society Thrift Shop. In return, eligible volunteers can get reimbursement for transportation and child care expenses. To learn more about volunteer opportunities give us a call or stop by.
The NMCRS Spouse Tuition Aid Program (STAP)
The STAP education program helps eligible spouses of active duty NMCRS personnel pursue their academic goals by providing interest free loans for education. Loans can be given for the full cost of tuition and books as needed, up to $3,000 per calendar year. The Society also provides education bridge loans for Navy and Marine Corps service members to cover all or a portion of the cost if education benefits are not received in time.
