Review for Aurora Foundation, Fairfax, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Over the course of several years the Aurora Foundation has had the opportunity to collect information on student veteran retention rates at universities; the result: only 10% of student veterans successfully graduate from college after 6 years compared to 60% of traditional students. This is where Aurora has had a significant impact in working with universities to establish support programs for their student veterans to help drive up retention rates and enable them to be better prepared to successfully enter the civilian workforce.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

providing student veterans every support service and opportunity they need to successfully graduate from college, complete an internship, and enter the civilian workforce.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

nothing other than trying to help it reach more universities and student veterans.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely
