Helmets to Hardhats

Veterans thank you for your service!!!

What is Helmets to Hardhats?

Making a successful transition from the military into the civilian workforce can be difficult. Transitioning military veterans face the same challenges as any other job hunter – getting their résumé to the right people, learning how to sell themselves, tracking down promising leads, following-up with employers, headhunters, job placement agencies... etc. Not many people are comfortable with this process and veterans have the added stress of trying to translate the skills they learned in the military into language that civilian employers can understand. The process can feel overwhelming, especially if it seems like meaningful help is unavailable.

Helmets to Hardhats (H2H) was formed for this reason and is dedicated to helping National Guard, Reserve, retired and transitioning active-duty military members connect to quality career and training opportunities in one of America's most challenging and rewarding industries – the construction industry.

Why the Building Trades?

Going from a helmet to a hardhat is a great opportunity for many of the 250,000 to 300,000 men and women discharged from the military every year.

The construction industry offers an annual salary higher than the overall national average and more than 80 unique apprenticeship programs. Also, as a veteran, if you start out in the construction industry as an apprentice, you can earn while you learn. That means you will receive a paycheck as well as your Montgomery GI Bill benefits to cover general living expenses during your apprenticeship training.

Check out our Apprenticeship tab to contact our programs and ask them about H2H applications!!
