The Stages Of Our Growth

Our Vision

Our Mission

... is to build a holistic world-class support service and network where U.S. servicewomen and women veterans are fully empowered to achieve their dreams and goals.   

  

Our Goal

 ... is to ensure that every US servicewoman has a female-friendly space and community forum in which to effectively move from the structure, unique culture, and personal impact of their time in service to the

differently structured, nonmilitary culture of the civilian world.

Our Plan

... is to create a nationwide network of near-base and community-anchored women-centric service centers affording holistic hands-on support to frame, or reframe, and advance the civilian lives of our returning U.S. servicewomen. 

Our Plan

Women-Centric Facilities

Adjacent to installations, these will be spaces for mingling, talking, studying, learning, childcare, and relaxing.  Space in which to coach, teach, construct, and polish. Spaces for finding and sharing friendship and support.

Community Building Events

Hosting community building events including career and personal growth workshops: Where Yes and No Don't Mean It,  Networking (When You Hate It), Family Dynamics Now, Cooking for Those Who Can't, and sharing  simple pleasures like movie nights, and cookouts.


Coaching

Individual one-to-one relationships, and small groups coaching where coaches listen deeply, empower and inspire, and are judgement-free confidential resources focused on helping Sheroes to discover their personal choices and their next stage.

Education & Training

Career and skills training workshops  including Writing a Real Resume, Interview Planning and Rehearsals, Employer Presentations, Jobs Skills Training, Education Enrollment Support. 

Partnerships

Partnering with other Veteran Service Providers, YNS will work in partnership with every available organization, service and company committed to supporting our returning military personnel.

Referral Network

YNS will be a part of a technologically-integrated service network where each provider meets specific needs.  Sheroes will never walk alone, but will be guided to and through the right network to meet her needs.
