Career Training

Onward to Opportunity (O2O) & Veteran Program for Politics and Civic Engagement (VPPCE)

This year, consider taking the leap into a new career path with Onward to Opportunity (O2O) or tapping into the political training of the Veteran Program for Politics and Civic Engagement (VPPCE). O2O provides comprehensive career training, helping you transition seamlessly into the civilian workforce. Meanwhile, VPPCE offers guidance to those who have an interest in pursuing careers in politics. This program engages participants in various stages of political journey, covering topics such as fundraising, public communications, building platforms, and leveraging resources available to veterans.

The Veteran Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship (VWISE) program empowers female veterans, while the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans (EBV) equips you with the skills needed to start and grow your own business. The Veteran EDGE program supports growth-stage businesses by fostering innovation and providing a platform to thrive.
