Active Valor's team will tell you one of the most rewarding things they do is work side by side with other veterans, continuously trying to serve their community. They're able to share stories, build new friendships, and pass along knowledge they've gained through military experience.
Their mission is to restore purpose, fulfillment and community in veterans’ lives after military service, while significantly supporting the Gold Star community. This is not only a dual mission…it’s a triple mission.
ADS, Inc. is proud to support Active Valor's mission as well as their impact on veterans lives and Gold Star families.
Together, they participate in specially designed mission-based adventures that develop their creativity, communication, confidence, and most importantly, allows them to just be a kid for the day. Each adventure is based around different hands-on skillsets that allow veteran mentors to truly give back to this community.

“We chose to support valor adventures through our Mission Give Back Foundation because it not only pairs veterans and Gold Star Families together, but it provides opportunities for the families to build skills in a fun environment,” explained Nikki Williams, MGBF Executive Director.
Active Valor adventures feature enhanced communication skills, creative problem solving, increased confidence and self-esteem, importance of teamwork, exposure to creative elements and assistance with overcoming personal obstacles.
For the field day adventure, ADS helped sponsor the event to ensure each child and mentor received customized adventure gear, catered meals, event supplies, and covered location fees.

About Active Valor
Our program, Valor Adventures, was designed by a former Navy SEAL, envisioned to give new purpose to the lives of those who have served by redirecting their passion towards making a positive change in their local communities. Our veterans are placed in a mentorship role and given the chance to pass on their profound skill-sets gained from their military career to children that no longer have access to it. Together, our dynamic-duos utilize teamwork & problem solving to overcome different obstacles and challenges to successfully complete their missions.
