Among the amazing programs at the Wounded Warrior Project is the Transition Training Academy. This is yet another program that is designed to help veterans get prepared for a new career path as they change into their new lives once they return from combat. It is not so simple for all veterans making that transition into the civilian workforce, but that is why the programs truly exist.
This particular program is available for helping veterans seek more information about information technology as a possible career choice. The best part about this program is not only that it is focused on a career choice but it’s also designed to offer plenty of hands on training for the veterans with their instructors.
Learning-by-doing is a great way for veterans to transition into something that for them is such an unknown. Many veterans come back from combat not certain of what life will be like for them and they feel a bit out of their element. This is why Wounded Warrior Project is here to help service members and veterans get the support they need along with their family members to resume life as normal as possible.
How Wounded Warrior Project Uses Transition Training Academy to Heal
While it may not seem possible there is plenty of truth to the fact that the Transition Training Academy has healing properties to it. Because the model is a “high touch” engagement learning experience, those veterans that struggle with TBI or PTSD.
The classes are offered for free by Wounded Warrior Project to the men and women that have served our country, as well as spouses and caregivers too. There are several sites for this available in the United States and outside of the country including:
- Baumholder, Germany
- Camp Lejeune, Jacksonville, North Carolina
- Camp Pendleton, MCS, California
- Fort Belvoir, Fairfax, Virginia
- Fort Bragg, Fayetteville, North Carolina
- Fort Carson, Colorado Springs, Colorado
- And many more
There are many sites available to help as many warriors as possible and their families so that the transition into a new life is easier and guided by those that understand and have special training.
It’s amazing that something so wonderful exists, and if I were just now coming back from combat I know that I would find it useful and a comfort to know that so many people do really care about those men and women that serve our country.
Partners that Connected with Wounded Warrior Project
Now that you know what the organization has to offer you and your family, you should also know that many partners have made this program possible. The Department of Labor, Veteran’s Employment and Training Service, Cisco, and the Office of Disability Employment Policy. When all of these amazing organizations partner with WWP, it makes it easier to serve the men and women that have so faithfully served us.
I hope that you fully understand just how much Wounded Warrior Project has to offer you as a service member or veteran, and that you’ll find respite once you return home.
Share with others and lets get the word out.
