Helmets To Hardhats-Jobs For Veterans

Helmets to Hardhats is a national, nonprofit program that connects National Guard, Reserve, retired and transitioning active-duty military service members with skilled training and quality career opportunities in the construction industry. The program is designed to help military service members successfully transition back into civilian life by offering them the means to secure a quality career in the construction industry.

Most career opportunities offered Helmets To Hardhats the program are connected to federally-approved apprenticeship training programs. Such training is provided by the trade organizations themselves at no cost to the veteran. No prior experience is needed; in fact, most successful placements start with virtually no experience in their chosen field. All participating trade organizations conduct three to five year earn-while-you-learn apprenticeship training programs that teach service members everything they need to know to become a construction industry professional with a specialization in a particular craft. And, because these apprenticeship programs are regulated and approved at both federal and state levels, veterans can utilize their Montgomery G.I. Bill benefits to supplement their income while they are learning valuable skills and on the job training.

In 2007, Helmets to Hardhats supplemented its existing program with a disabled American veteran program known as the “Wounded Warrior” program, which serves to connect disabled veterans with employment opportunities in the construction industry and the careers that support construction.

VetJobs

VetJobs is the leading Internet niche job board for reaching the 10.2 million military veterans currently in the work force, the 200 thousand active duty military personnel who transition each year and the members of the National Guard and Reserve who return to the United States each year from extended deployments, and their family members.

VetJobs was established in 1999 following extensive research on job and resume sites catering to the military market. The research indicated there was a gap in sites which truly assisted employers in identifying the transitioning military and veteran candidates. Those that did exist emphasized transitioning military and missed veterans already in the workforce, members of the National Guard & Reserve and the family members of veterans.

VetJobs is operated by a seasoned management team of professionals to assist companies and hiring authorities to successfully reach the military market.

VetJobs is owned and operated by veterans for veterans. In January 2000, The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States exclusively sponsored and purchased ten percent of the company. Since then, VetJobs has garnered more veteran service organization endorsements than any other site. Written endorsements include the Vietnam Veterans of America, Veterans of Modern Warfare, Student Veterans of America, Hope4Heroes, the Military Order of the Purple Heart, United States Army Warrant Officers Association, The Retired Enlisted Association, National Guard Association of the United States and the Reserve Officers Association.

For seventeen years VetJobs has made it easy for employers to reach and employ all the members of the military community. VetJobs defines the military community to include Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Department of Defense Civilians, Marine Corps, Merchant Marine, National Guard, Navy, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Public Health Service, Reserves and their spouses and family members. VetJobs makes is easy to reach not only the transitioning military member, but also the highly qualified men and women who are veterans that have separated over the decades and are now productive members of the civilian work force in all disciplines.

Patriot Boot Camp

Patriot Boot Camp (PBC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to equip active duty military members, Veterans, and their spouses with the education, resources, and community needed to be successful technology entrepreneurs.

The objective of Patriot Boot Camp is to provide service members, Veterans, and spouses with access to mentors and training to help them innovate and build the next generation of high-growth, scaleable and impactful companies. Patriot Boot Camp leverages a nationwide network of business and startup community thought leaders to help entrepreneurs bridge the gap between military service and entrepreneurial life.

Patriot Boot Camp was founded by Taylor McLemore as a volunteer effort organized under the startup accelerator Techstars to address the gaps in support military members, Veterans, and their spouses often encounter as technology entrepreneurs.

The first Patriot Boot Camp event was held in 2012 at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Subsequent events were held in 2013 at the George Washington University School of Business, and in 2014 at Goldman Sachs in New York City and the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery in Madison, Wisconsin.

Many sponsors, mentors and supporters helped PBC grow into a successful catalyst for helping military Veterans and spouses launch into technology entrepreneurship. In fall 2014, PBC became an independent program and filed for 501(c)(3) non- profit status.
