VEEP was created to provide service members and veterans with the training and skills needed to join the apprenticeship immediately after separation. By working with bases and local training centers (JATCs), VEEP pairs participants with a JATC that will provide pre-apprenticeship training, and a JATC to continue their apprenticeship after separation. VEEP aims to provide as seamless a transition to civilian life as possible. To apply, be a veteran with a EAS/EAOS date no more than 5 years prior to application; and have or certify you will have when available a DD-214 with Honorable or General, Under Honorable character of service. For Inside Electrician programs SkillBridge is available. For Lineworker applicants, active duty participants must be on terminal leave at the start of training.

Helmets to Hardhats

H2H was created by the Center for Military Recruitment, Assessment and Veterans Employment. H2H is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit joint labor-management driven entity that connects transitioning active-duty military service members, veterans, National Guard and Reservists with skilled training and quality career opportunities in the construction industry.



VIPER's mission is to end veteran suicide through the elimination of its main causes: veteran unemployment, under employment, substance abuse, homelessness, and a fractured support system.  We work to accomplish our mission through pre-employment training, resource networking, outreach, and the inclusion of military spouses in our programs.

Furthering our cause is the most important goal of our organization. We seek to support, empower, and provide high quality resources to our community in a safe and secure environment. Our success isn’t measured in terms of wealth or profit margin, but by the value we provide to those we serve. We have programs that create a seamless transition to quality careers coupled with mental health resourcing and mentorship.
