April 10-16 is National Volunteer Week. Here is one story of volunteerism from inside SVA's National Headquarters:
"Admittedly, before I began my year of service with Student Veterans of America, I did not know much about military life. However after working as a Resident Assistant at Binghamton University, I knew I wanted to continue to help students succeed in school. I found out about SVA while applying forAmeriCorps VISTA positions after graduation. I chose to spend my service year with Student Veterans of America because I believe it is very important for students—especially non-traditional students—to have support on campus so that they can learn, grow, and succeed at school.
