Vocational Education & Training

These programs are intended to shore up strengths and mitigate vulnerabilities among our veterans. A key component of this is sponsorship throughout their transition process. Sponsors will help veterans develop tailored action plans that support and sustain them post-training and help them integrate into civilian communities through civic and service group activities. Career placement services will also be provided to ensure that veterans are gainfully employed in meaningful, rewarding careers. This multi-pronged approach will help veterans achieve a successful transition to civilian life, with the underlying goal of reducing veteran suicide.

We have also begun to develop partnerships with established organizations with career-track programs ranging from technical and advanced technical to collegiate levels. For example, these programs include underwater welding, computer science, and manufacturing, resulting in a variety of education and training pursuits that leverage the skills and experiences acquired by veterans throughout their military careers.
