Stand-To – A National Veterans Convening
“By supporting and enabling our nation’s warriors in their new missions as civilians, we unleash the potential of a generation of resourceful, determined, and experienced leaders – for the good of our vets, and our country.” —President George W. Bush
The Bush Institute is committed to improving transition and outcomes for post-9/11 veterans and their families.
Learnings from our collective impact work and our 2017 national convening lead to the creation of the Stand-To Veteran Leadership Program -- a program aimed at individuals from diverse sectors across the country who are motivated to increase their impact in helping our nation's veterans.
By honing participants' leadership skills, enhancing their network, and advancing individual projects, the program will widely affect our nation's veterans and the services and opportunities available to them.
