Veteran transition presents challenges.
Cultural and emotional forces can collide to make the process of transition into the educational and professional settings seem at times overwhelming. Physical and emotional wounds serve to further complicate matters.
With great challenge comes great opportunity. At the Wyakin Foundation, our focus is on strength rather than struggle. We emphasize the process of applying the cultural strengths of the veteran experience – discipline, loyalty, selflessness – to create success in the academic setting as a precedent for success beyond.
We create and encourage opportunities for Warriors to foster active and mutually beneficial relationships
We collaborate to develop individualized plans to address each Warrior’s goals & developmental needs.
We provide community mentors that engage, challenge, and support the Warriors.
Warriors can earn a stable and equitable stipend towards alleviating personal financial challenges.
