Student Veterans Foundation was developed to meet the unique needs of veterans on college campuses nationally. After extensive research on public and private campuses throughout the nation, SVF has clearly identified those unique needs. The SVF worked with experts in various fields to design a variety of veteran specific programs to implement on and off campus. These internal and external programs provide student veterans with the training, tools, and supportive community to flourish as students, businesspeople, and members of their families and communities.
Coordinated programs will create touch points for every on-campus veteran providing them with:
social, psychological, and educational training and support
empowerment to express and grow their leadership skills and business acumen
a clear path towards student body leadership positions.
EXTERNAL PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS:
Partners Choice Social Program
The external partners will be a body of selective SVF Partner Choice Programs to include businesses and create local family, athletic, social events, and large live entertainment venues. Student veterans and their families will be encouraged to participate, volunteer, and speak at these events which will be available to student veterans to attend at a reduced rate.
Business Mentorship and Employment
Business mentorship and employment opportunities will be available through the Business Choice Partnership Program. Owners and leaders from local businesses will speak at internal SVF events on topics such as entrepreneurialism, resume writing, business plan development, funding opportunities, strategies for business growth, and much more. The opportunities are endless.
Organizations, community leaders, interested individuals, and groups will volunteer on campus, host events for the veterans and family, and support the on-campus program. Auxiliary SVF gear will be available at a discount for auxiliary members.
