Washington, D.C. — May 17, 2024 — The Mission Continues, a national nonprofit dedicated to empowering veterans as community-based leaders, announced a strategic transition of the Women Veterans Leadership Program (WVLP) to Beneath the Service. This transition is designed to focus and enhance the impact of WVLP, ensuring its continued success and alignment with organizational missions.

This transition to Beneath the Service marks a pivotal moment to ensure that WVLP continues to grow and serve the evolving needs of women veterans. Although nearly 400 participants have completed WVLP, the program has received almost 4,200 applications in four years, highlighting the tremendous demand and the importance of its mission to empower women veterans.
