Veteran Chapter Leads

The Veteran Chapter Lead Program is an opportunity for military veterans in the WYWM community to be helped by other veterans through their transition or career change journey.

"I want to mentor veterans, support their networks and get them into technology. We need to break that narrative of the broken veteran. Veterans - and the military community in general - are used to constant training, working in teams and solving problems. I want to set up opportunities and share that success with the serving military and veteran communities"

"There is currently a large void in leadership in directly helping Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members and veterans find meaningful and fulfilling employment, post-service. WYWM is here to fill that void and provide the necessary guidance, leadership, and peer support that is necessary in achieving successful results for CAF veterans and their families as they transition from the military to becoming civilians once again.""
