The Onward to Opportunity Program at Fort Drum

Onward to Opportunity empowers highly qualified transitioning service members, veterans, and military spouses with the specific skills and proficiencies required to excel in growing industries. The O2O Program at Fort Drum offers an enhanced experience with in-person opportunities.

Your journey will begin with two and a half days of face-to-face classroom training and facilitation that includes the two-day “Onward to Your Career!” professional development course and the half-day foundation’s course in a learning pathway of your choosing. Once completed, candidates will begin online coursework. Service members, with Battalion Commander Authority, will complete online training the following 10 weeks in a classroom setting during the service member’s duty day (schedule and application to be provided during orientation). Veterans and spouses will have 14 weeks for coursework completion, followed by another 14 weeks for test preparation.

While you complete your coursework, you will also participate in mixer/networking events with our National Employer Partners to hone your personal marketing techniques and skills. O2O candidates work one-on-one with a HHUSA Veteran Transition Specialist (VTS) to complete their resume, prepare for and secure job interviews.
