FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Washington, DC – October 4, 2022

HillVets is proud to announce that Senator Raphael Warnock (D-GA) has signed on as our newest HillVets Fellowship Ambassador. HillVets Ambassadors are Members of Congress who publicly support the HillVets Fellowship program and consider HillVets Fellows for placement in their office to undertake substantive policy work. These Ambassadors are committed to assisting the military-connected community undertake successful and impactful careers in the public policy realm.

HillVets Fellowship (HVHF) program provides Veterans, service members, Reservists, members of National Guard, and surviving family members who wish to pursue a career in government, policy, and/or advocacy, the opportunity to serve as a Legislative Fellow in a Congressional office. Fellows develop relationships with peers and mentors while gaining substantive exposure to and understanding of all facets of the legislative process. Taking part in such experiences provides individuals with the necessary skills to find full-time employment in a policy-related position. Furthermore, HillVets offers safe, furnished, free housing for any of its Fellows who need it, as well as a small monthly stipend. The HillVets Fellowship program also provides numerous ways to broaden a Fellow’s professional network and a plethora of educational opportunities.

“I am proud to be an Ambassador for HillVets,” remarked Senator Warnock. “One of my top priorities as a Senator representing Georgia’s Veterans is to ensure they have access to the care and benefits they have earned. I believe by bringing more veterans to the halls of Congress, we will know better what the needs of Veterans are and how best to address them.”

HillVets believes that the voices of military-connected individuals need to be heard throughout the policymaking process. It is with the help of Senator Warnock and all our HillVets Fellowship Ambassadors that we can provide them with the chance to contribute their lived experience, knowledge, expertise, and perceptions to the issues that most impact them.

“We are excited to have Senator Warnock join the ‘family’ of HillVets Fellowship Ambassadors and look forward to working with his office,” said Jodi Harman, HillVets Director of Programs. “The addition of a newer Member of Congress shows that both knowledge of our program and the value of having a HillVets Fellow placed in one’s office are spreading and is a testament to HillVets’ success.”
