Apply to Storm the Hill

Storm the Hill Application

Thank you for your interest in IAVA’s Storm the Hill.

Storm the Hill is our signature advocacy and leadership development program that brings the stories of the more than 3.4 million veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan to Washington yearly. We need your help to call on our elected leaders to fight on behalf of this generation of veterans.

In past years, IAVA members from around the country have joined us as we’ve met with over 100 Congressional offices and key leaders in the Executive Branch, including The White House. Together we made sure the Veterans backlog became a top priority for all Americans, defended the Post 9/11 GI Bill, and saw the passage of the Clay Hunt SAV Act.

In 2019, IAVA will once again take the fight to DC and keep it going all across the country to raise awareness and for our biggest priorities:

Apply today to join IAVA at one of our quarterly Storm the Hills:

Summer Storm: June 10-14
Fall Storm: September 16-20
Winter Storm: December 3-6

Applications are on a rolling basis and will be reviewed upon receipt.

Storm the Hill and Veterans Policy

We're recruiting for leaders both in Washington and in communities across the country.

We’ll take the fight to Washington, D.C. to share their stories and call on Congress to act on the issues confronting our community. Stormers will come to D.C. for the entire week. They will be put through an intensive training on policy, advocacy and media before meeting with Members of Congress, their staff and other elected leaders.

Please rate our 11 policy agenda priorities in terms of importance to you.
