The 2017 Graduating Class from The Women Veterans Civic Leadership Institute is a proud and diverse coalition of 25-women and girls in military families. They include a host of talented Women Veterans, Active Duty Reservists, National Guard, ROTC, Military Spouses and Military Moms who are all dedicated to our core mission of achieving positive social change through post-military civic engagement and public leadership.
“Today’s Military Women Are The New & Emerging
Faces Of Public Leaders in America.”
~ Deborah Harmon-Pugh, National Campaign Chair
Women Veterans ROCK! is a vibrant community of Military Millennial Women. Every year we engage some 350+ Military Women and ROTC Cadet Girls, (ages 16+), specifically in Civic Leadership Training; Civic Engagement Forums on Capitol Hill; and we work to empower them as Public Policy advocates. Our graduates then move on to become proud members of The Women Veterans 2020 Delegation to Washington, DC.
This year, The Women Veterans Civic Leadership Institute expanded its civic leadership training for JROTC Cadet Girls. We instituted a STEM Civic Leadership Education & Engagement component to our incubator program. Working in partnership with The School District of Philadelphia, Women Veterans ROCK is a new and emerging innovator in this intergenerational civic engagement initiative for Women and Girls in Military Families.
The “Women Veterans ROCK!” Civic Leadership Institute is supported by its long-term Community Partner, Chestnut Hill College and is funded in part by it’s National Enduring Partner, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated – the nation’s only Greek Letter Organization with a nationwide initiative “Supporting America’s Women Veterans And Military Families.”
