Veterans & Military Families
We focus on developing the leadership skills of veterans and those who serve them and their families.
“America’s veterans have taken on the toughest tasks imaginable. Now it’s our turn to continue to help.”
— President George W. Bush
Government programs and initiatives, corporations, millions of individuals, and more than 45,000 philanthropic organizations are committed to improving veterans’ quality of life. However, there’s misalignment, duplication, confusion, and gaps in providing effective services to transitioning veterans and their families.
What is lacking is effective leadership training for those who are responsible for implementing the programs and policies. In breaking down the civilian-military divide, leadership matters.
The Stand-To Veteran Leadership Program is aimed at accomplished leaders from diverse sectors across the country who are motivated to increase their impact in supporting our Nation’s veterans. Scholars include active-duty service members, veterans, and civilians from different backgrounds and sectors.
