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.
Research shows that while every veteran transition looks different, there are three keys to a successful transition: health and well-being, education, and employment.
Government programs and initiatives, more than 45,000 philanthropic organizations, corporations, and millions of individuals are committed to improving veterans' quality of life. By honing participants' leadership skills, enhancing their network, and advancing individual projects, the program will empower those who are responsible for implementing the programs and policies.
Scholars include active duty service members, veterans, and civilians from diverse backgrounds and sectors.
