Aurora Video Unveiled!

The Aurora Foundation is pleased to release a short video that summarizes the work Aurora has done with our schools, industry partners, and interns.  We are grateful for the opportunity to share with you impact we are having on campus as well as in the workforce.  But, we are especially grateful for the chance to share the stories of student veterans and their families who have successfully made the transition from “boots to books to business.”

Since 2008, Aurora has been making a difference in the lives of student veterans.  After capturing some of these numbers and stories, please take a minute to watch the 6 minute video, found on our home page.

Aurora’s mission, as you know, is to enable student veterans to successfully graduate from college and enter the workforce.  Support from community partners, donors, and our all-volunteer staff helped us serve more than 15 colleges and universities, reaching more than 18,000 student veterans and providing over two dozen paid internships.  With 73 cents of every dollar going to our programs and internships, we are proud of the positive results we have achieved since Aurora was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2008. 

A special thanks goes out to the team at West Cary Group for creating it, and special thanks to Ed Jesson (President of OBXTek) for funding it.
