The Onward to Opportunity Program for the Hawai’i Pacific Region


The Onward to Opportunity Program for the Hawai’i Pacific Region proudly serves Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Schofield Barracks, Marine Corps Base Hawai’i, the United States Coast Guard District 14, and Reserve and National Guard units to include all other eligible participants in the Hawai’i Pacific Region. The program offers two career tracks: Information Technology & Business Management.

Your journey will begin with four days of face-to-face classroom training and facilitation that includes the Onward to Your Career course and the foundations course in a learning pathway of your choosing. The classroom portion is followed by 6-12 weeks of online coursework to earn an industry certification.

While you complete your certification coursework, you will also participate in networking events with our National and Local Employer Partners to hone your personal marketing techniques and skills. This is a great way to gain inside perspective on careers in the private sector while introducing yourself to companies who are looking to hire O2O graduates. Additionally, our National Partner Hire Heroes USA will assist you with job placement, building your resume, and preparing for interviews.
