As a trusted neutral convener and non-direct service provider, NAVSO partners with organizations across the nation to dive into a specific problem or challenge and promote actionable change across the military community. 

NAVSO strives to transform veteran services to improve the lives of veterans and military families. To achieve those goals, NAVSO uses a human-centered design summit methodology that uncovers meaningful insights concerning barriers and opportunities affecting veteran transitions. Our summit methodologies help our partners drive actionable changes to achieve results.

These convenings bring together veteran serving organizations, businesses, government leaders, academia and funders to discuss challenges and opportunities facing the veteran and military family communities.
