Workshops for Warriors
Advanced Manufacturing Training for Young Veterans
Workshops for Warriors (WFW) provides veterans and transitioning service members with industry-leading manufacturing skills and job placement. Advanced manufacturing is a rapidly growing industry that provides excellent compensation, but is experiencing a significant national shortage of trained professionals. W4W trains, certifies, and places veterans into living wage jobs in the manufacturing industry within four to eight months. Veterans who graduate the program will begin careers as welders, machinists, mill and lathe operators, parts designers, and programmers. This grant will initiate industrial careers of at least 150 veterans who graduate from the Advanced Manufacturing Training for Young Veterans program.
