Clay Hunt (1982-2011)

“If I had one thing to say to my fellow veterans, it would be this: Continue to serve, even though we have taken off our uniforms. No matter how great or small your service is, it is desired and needed by the world we live in today. It doesn’t matter what it is, it only matters that you are continuing to put others before yourself, just like you did when you were in the military. Actions like that are the only sure ways to bring about the positive social change that our country and our world need so badly these days.”

CHFP Components

Veteran Focused

Our Mission: The Clay Hunt Fellows Program equips the veteran with tools to redefine their purpose and self-identity to further support their life of service through a 6-month in-person / virtual curriculum of personal growth and self-discovery.

Core Values

CHFP has three core values for our fellows and the program: Commitment to growth, moral integrity, and servant leadership. Fellows must have a willingness to be vulnerable and embrace a growth mindset. To be stewards of Clay’s legacy by inspiring and supporting others while serving the broader community.

Base Camp Curriculum

During this program, fellows will complete a six-month Base Camp curriculum focused on personal growth and self-reflection. This is done through a weekly series of independent and group exercises to promote strengths discovery, self-awareness exploration. Upon completion, Fellows will be equipped to better lead in their communities and within Team Rubicon


During and after the fellowship, veterans will grow themselves to become more self-aware leaders, and have a team of fellow veterans along the way to support them. The ever-growing support system of Clay Hunt Fellows will support each other’s journey, where ever that might take them.

Clay's Story

The Clay Hunt Fellows Program is named in honor of Marine veteran, and original member of Team Rubicon, Clay Hunt.  Clay was one of the first to deploy to Haiti which the existence of Team Rubicon was born. He continued to serve others who needed help despite his inner struggle with PTS. Ultimately, took his own life in 2011. We honor him today through the Clay Hunt Fellows Program, a personal development and growth program for veterans. His dedication to service and helping others is a legacy we hope to promote within the veteran community. His fierce dedication to others has inspired a new generation of veterans to continue service and lead by example, through the Fellows Program.
