"We have the most well-trained, best prepared, most technically advanced military the world has ever seen. There's going to be a lot of capable people who leave military life to enter the civilian work force." -Gary Sinise

The Get Skills to Work coalition will focus on: accelerating skills training for U.S. veterans; helping veterans and employers translate military skills to advanced manufacturing jobs; and empowering employers with tools to recruit, onboard and mentor veterans.

Accelerated skills training program offered in ten states:

  • Online "badging" helps veterans translate military experience to civilian job opportunities
  • GE and Institute for Veterans and Military Families to create employer toolkit to expand and enhance hiring
  • Hands-on trainings at five TechShop locations enable veterans to use advanced manufacturing technologies
