The Station Foundation Partners with The COMMIT Foundation to Offer Special Forces Mentoring Workshop in Dallas - March 21 and 22, 2013

I have just learned  from Kevin Stacy, Founder of the Station Foundation, about a very exciting mentoring opportunity offered to members of the Special Forces Community in Dallas in March, 2013.  Selection will take place in the next few weeks.  Please forward this information to everyone in your network who may be interested.

The COMMIT Foundation and THE STATION Foundation are joining forces to create the first annual SOF Mentoring Workshop. On March 21 and 22, 2013, twelve outstanding and chosen veterans of the Special Operations community will gather in Dallas to take part in a special mentoring workshop. COMMIT is a tremendous believer in mentorship and knows how inspiring and life-changing just one story from an inspirational leader can be. THE STATION believes that the first step in veterans identifying an appropriate career path is to better understand their values and identity beyond the Military. Together, our workshop will increase participants comfort level with business leaders, increase the participants awareness of their core values and lead our participants to the best career path for them.


For veterans interested in participating, you must submit an application at by December 28, 2012. All applicants must have served under U.S. Special Operations Command in either the Iraq or Afghanistan conflicts since September 11, 2001. Veterans will be notified by January 11, 2013 whether they are selected for the program or not. Veteran expenses will be covered.


We are currently vetting mentors from the private sector for this amazing and potentially life-changing event. The executives will share their insights on life’s lessons, big decision points and serendipitous moments. We will also spend time addressing goal setting and potential paths for the veterans as they transition from the services to the private sector. 

As far as time commitment, we ask that executives *fully* participate from 8:30am-4pm on March 22nd. (There will be evening events on both nights but they are optional for the executives due to their demanding schedule.) We assure mentors that they will benefit from the day as much as the veterans do. If you or someone you know is interested in participating as a mentor, please reach out to us.


The SOF community has served us unlike any other and this is our unique way of giving back in a manner that will continue to pay it forward. Our goal is to raise $50,000.00 prior to this event. If you are interested in being a sponsor, please reach out to us. This is the third workshop where COMMIT’s transformational model will be proven out. We held a workshop for Italian American veterans in October 2011 and for women veterans in November 2012. We are excited to be honoring our Special Operations veterans in March 2013.

Please let us know if you have any questions and whether you are willing to commit to this day of serendipity. Anne Meree Craig, the Executive Director of COMMIT, will make herself available at any time to personally discuss the event and provide full background on our organization. We look forward to hearing from you.
