About Team RWB
Team RWB's mission is to enrich the lives of America's veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Team RWB defines enrichment as creating quality relationships and experiences that contribute to life satisfaction and overall well-being. The concept of enrichment consists of three core components—health, people, and purpose—that comprise a rich life. Health: Creating frequent opportunities for team members to connect through fitness, sports, and recreation to improve physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. People: Creating authentic connections (defined as genuine, quality, supportive relationships that generate mutual trust and accountability), reflected in an increased number of close relationships and improvements in teammates' sense of belonging, purpose, and community engagement. Purpose: Engaging members in meaningful team and community-based experiences such as leadership and service that, beyond physical and social activities, renew self-identity and purpose in life. Team RWB accomplishes their mission via our two core programs: our Chapter and Community Program and our Eagle Leadership Development Program.
