CYPOV Podcast is dedicated to helping Veterans become just as successful out of uniform as they were when they were in. Mentorship by far is one of the most critical elements to the success of transitioning veterans and their families. Education, on the other hand, is what opens doors of opportunity and allows for far more options in your life and career.
This week I have the pleasure of sitting down with Justine Evirs. We break down some stereotypes, crush some egos and bring things into a bit of perspective!
Justine is proud Navy veteran and high energy innovator, transforming the veteran community through the development of human-centered programs and policies, that empower our nation’s veterans to be tomorrow’s leaders within different industries across the nation.
As a first generation college graduate, Justine has dedicated the last 6 years to transforming our active duty, military spouse, and veteran community through academic advising & program development. She has successfully taken her personal transition experiences combined with my professional experiences to develop programs and policies that better serve our veteran communities within higher education institutions.
Currently, she is serving as the Senior Director of Programs at Service to School. Service to School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides free application counseling to transitioning service members and community college student veterans. Their goal is to empower and assist veterans to earn admission to the best universities across the nation through peer mentorship and camaraderie. S2S was founded by veterans and is led by veterans committed to transforming our veteran community through the power of higher education.
