To become a Program Leader at Mighty Oaks is an honored status amongst our Alumni. All Facilitators, Team Leaders and Instructors are veterans who have started their journey to become an instructor by attending the program as a student.

After successful completion of our programs some students are invited to attend various paths of leadership training in order to give back to their fellow service members. Those selected go through multiple phase training programs to earn a position in leadership. This alumni and peer-based instructor model is one of the keys to our success at Mighty Oaks, and provides a unique environment for Warriors to connect with other Warriors. Some Alumni go on to partner with Mighty Oaks to plant Outposts around the country to help Warriors in their community.

While we have a growing staff of leadership for Mighty Oaks, we would like you to meet a few from our primary leaders:
