New Hampshire Young Veterans Network was founded July 25th, 2018, coincidentally National Hire a Veteran Day.
Our mission is to energize, engage, and connect young veterans in the Granite State.
Transitioning out of military service and into civilian life is a process that seems easy while in the military. However, when veterans are out of service, it proves to be more difficult than anticipated. NHYVN was founded to assist young veterans with building their professional networks, in the hopes of making this transition easier. We look to host networking events where young veterans can meet business leaders in their community as well as more established veterans who’ve made the transition successfully.
