After the Corps™ strives to provide as much accurate, up-to-date information on organizations across the country that provide resources for military veterans.
Started by Governor Nixon in 2010, Show-Me Heroes is a cooperative effort between the Missouri Army National Guard and the Missouri Division of Workforce Development.
We are able to accomplish this mission by creating strong relationships with Missouri's employers, coordinating efforts with Veterans Service Organizations and private and public agencies; and through close cooperation and integration with the Missouri National Guard and Department of Economic Development.Read more
Helmets to Hardhats is a national, nonprofit program that connects National Guard, Reserve, retired and transitioning active-duty military service members with skilled training and quality career opportunities in the construction industry. The program is designed to help military service members successfully transition back into civilian life by offering them the means to secure a quality career in the construction industry.
Most career opportunities offered by the program are connected to federally-approved apprenticeship training programs. Such training is provided by the trade organizations themselves at no cost to the veteran. No prior experience is needed; in fact, most successful placements start with virtually no experience in their chosen field. All participating trade organizations conduct three to five year earn-while-you-learn apprenticeship training programs that teach service members everything they need to know to become a construction industry professional with a specialization in a particular craft. And, because these apprenticeship programs are regulated and approved at both federal and state levels, veterans can utilize their Montgomery G.I. Bill benefits to supplement their income while they are learning valuable skills and on the job training.
In 2007, Helmets to Hardhats supplemented its existing program with a disabled American veteran program known as the "Wounded Warrior" program, which serves to connect disabled veterans with employment opportunities in the construction industry and the careers that support construction.
