Workshops for Warriors
Advanced Manufacturing Training for Wounded Warriors, Veterans, and Transitioning Service Members
Location: San Diego, Calif.
Issue Area: Education and Employment
Advanced manufacturing provides exciting professional opportunities for veterans who do not aspire to a corporate workplace. The four to six month training program trains, certifies, and places transitioning military, wounded warriors, and low-income veterans into advanced manufacturing careers. Workshops to Warriors participants receive quality hands-on training and accredited STEM education, and earn third-party nationally-recognized credentials. The Bob Woodruff Foundation grant will rent industrial equipment for the workshops, and will contribute to instructor costs and veteran trainee lodging and stipends.
