They support their chapters through three core programs- the annual Leadership Institute, Local Leadership Summits, and through awarding SVA Chapter Grants.
The Leadership Institute and Local Leadership Summits use the SVA-MFRI Chapter Success Manual to train chapter leaders how to create business plans for their organizations. SVA’s Chapter Grants then fund the initiatives outlined in each group’s submitted plan.
In conjunction with these activities, SVA also hosts an annual National Conference. While the conference theme changes each year, networking, the sharing of best-practices, and a thriving national community of student veterans always remain constant.
