The Mission Continues is now accepting applications for the Spring 2022 Women Veterans Leadership Program, Cohort 4.
The Women Veterans Leadership Program changes the narrative on what it means to be a woman veteran by leveraging their leadership skills and authentic selves to become change-makers, all while enhancing their personal and professional networks. By the end of this one-of-a-kind program, cohort members will have made lifelong friends and lasting connections with other women veterans. Everyone will feel empowered to lead the charge for gender equality in their communities.
**Application deadline is Wednesday, January 12, 2022.**
The Women Veterans Leadership Program (WVLP), launched in March 2020, provides leadership skills and knowledge for women veterans to build a movement so we can pursue equal opportunities for all women in leadership attainment.
WVLP program members will have opportunities to engage a nationwide network of women leaders and The Mission Continues staff throughout the five-months of the program and beyond. After completion of the program, WVLP graduates will gain access to a growing alumni network and be eligible for additional mentorship and leadership opportunities to help grow a veteran-led movement of service.
There are three primary goals for graduates of the Women Veterans Leadership Program:
To provide program members with the knowledge, mindsets, skills and resources essential to proudly identify as a woman veteran and leader
Strengthened confidence and renewed passion to raise their voice and serve as an ally for other women in leadership attainment
And lastly, take the knowledge, skills and experience and make a difference in their community.
