Jared Lyon is the National Program Director of Syracuse University’s Institute for veterans and military families. As the first institute of its kind in the nation, the IVMF leverages the intellectual, programmatic and human capital resources of higher education in support of the post-service life course of the nation’s veterans and military families.

The IVMF focuses on developing impactful programming, cultivating actionable research, conducting policy analysis and providing technical assistance positioned to address the social, economic and public policy challenges facing the veterans’ community. The IVMF team approaches this mission as a collaboration, forging enduring partnerships with government, private industry, institutions of higher education, philanthropic organizations and stakeholders committed to supporting transitioning service members, veterans and their families.

Joining WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning Lyon said the best way for someone to get involved in the program – veterans or volunteers – is to send an email through Vets.syr.edu.

The program offers entrepreneurial training to post 9/11 veterans, and Lyon stresses there is a competitive entry process – in other words, not everyone gets in. But, if you are accepted, all of your expenses are paid.
