The Arkansas National Guard Foundation aims to support the Arkansas Work-Force by providing focused, high-quality professional development, enhanced leadership experiences, and educational opportunities. The Foundation underwrites various state and national conferences and professional development seminars aimed at furthering service-member development.
These initiatives supplement the Arkansas Department of the Military by providing programs that combat the problem of suicide among currently serving and recently separated members who could be at risk of self-harm. Initiatives include life skills, counter-drug, and financial literacy training to all National Guard families. These programs ensure that Guard members are resilient and have the tools they need to succeed as leaders in the Arkansas workforce and are planning for retirement and post service job placement.
