WhiteSpace + SAVI: Supporting Veterans Transitioning Into the Civilian Workplace

WhiteSpace helps ensure that these employees and their employers have the tools they need for success at work, which is an important part of whole-life reintegration for our Veterans.

Qgiv + SAVI: Giving Veteran-Focused Nonprofits a Fundraising Boost
This partnership allows SAVI to share resources and tools that will maximize our nonprofit partners’ efficiency. Qgiv has an amazing platform that will support their fundraising efforts, and we’re happy to partner with them and give back to the Veteran community!

23rd Veteran + SAVI: Assisting Veterans with Positive Reconditioning
We’re honored to work alongside another nonprofit whose sole mission is to create a friendly transition to our military Veterans. Not only are they focused on Vets currently transitioning from military to civilian life, but they also assist those who are still struggling even after transition.

Blog Highlights: Get Tips to Improve Your (and Their) Transition
Our blog brings SAVI readers only the best tips for improving the Veteran-to-civilian transition. Posts from July offer relocation advice to Veterans, help employers understand their Veteran employees, and share a Marine’s personal story transitioning into the civilian world.

Because we know the road to mission success requires many hands, we’re grateful to have all of you on our team. We hope you’ll share our story and continue to support a whole-life transition for Veterans.

EDUCATION TRACK

Transitioning into higher education after years of military service can seem overwhelming. But SAVI’s Education Track is designed specifically to support Veterans like you from start to finish — academic advising, walkthroughs of your VA education benefits … and everything in between. 

All transitioning Veterans in SAVI’s programs gain access to our carefully developed tools for post-military students, including the SAVI Student Transition Incubator℠, Student Track Transition Program℠, and Student Benefit Assessment Service℠, as well as our personalized career path determination assistance. Each of these services is vital to a whole life approach to the military-to-civilian transition. 

EMPLOYMENT TRACK

Continuing on your professional journey after military service can be an amazing opportunity to find a new career that fulfills you and lets you thrive. Yet civilian workplace etiquette and the hiring process can be much different than what you’re used to as a service-member. The job search and performance evaluation processes are much more employee-driven, for example, and the workplace can be more isolating without the shared objective of high-stakes national defense.

SAVI’s Employment Track delivers start-to-finish support to help Veterans navigate a new career. From skills assessments to professional networking strategies, SAVI offers custom-built tools — including the SAVI Employment Transition Incubator℠, Job Networking & Search Service℠, and Employment Benefit Assessment Service℠ — as well as job retention and mentoring services to help you every step of the way. Each of these services is vital to a whole life approach to military-to-civilian transition.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP TRACK

Chasing your dream of self-employment can seem daunting after years of a highly structured military life. But SAVI provides the resources to help you turn this dream into a fulfilling reality — and so that you don’t have to go it alone.

All transitioning Veterans on this track receive our comprehensive tools for personal business success: the SAVI Entrepreneur Transition Incubator℠ and Entrepreneur Benefit Assessment Service℠, as well as our opportunity consulting and our funding exploration  support. Each of these services is vital to a whole life approach to the military-to-civilian transition.

RETIREMENT TRACK

After serving your time in the military, it’s time to look forward toward your retirement. SAVI is here every step of the way to help you transition from service-member to thriving retiree. We’re here to ensure you don’t have to muddle through the financial, personal, and emotional aspects of retirement on your own.

All transitioning Veterans on this track receive comprehensive tools for a successful retirement: the SAVI Retirement Transition Incubator℠ and Retirement Benefit Assessment Service℠, as well as our one-on-one ongoing assistance and assessment services. Each of these services is vital to a whole life approach to the military-to-civilian transition.
