Our specialists can help you:
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) supports employers by helping them connect with qualified candidates, providing information and education about combat-related injuries (such as post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury), reasonable accommodations, facilitating a productive onboarding process, and developing a long-lasting relationship throughout the life cycle of employment.
- Set attainable goals;
- Build an effective resume;
- Prepare for an interview; and
- Network with local employers.
Hiring a Wounded Warrior is a smart business move.
Transition Training Academy
WWP created the Transition Training Academy™ (TTA), a hands-on program that helps you explore the information-technology (IT) field as a possible career choice. TTA instruction is a high-touch blended learning model where instructors engage personally with each student with “learn-by-doing” teaching techniques that increase the potential for student success. This is especially beneficial for those warriors who suffer from TBI or PTSD. All TTA courses and class materials are provided free of charge to warriors and their spouse or caregiver.
Current TTA sites include:
- Baumholder, Germany
- Camp Lejeune, Jacksonville, North Carolina
- Camp Pendleton, MCS, California
- Fort Belvoir, Fairfax, Virginia
- Fort Bragg, Fayetteville, North Carolina
- Fort Carson, Colorado Spring, Colorado
- Fort Lewis, Tacoma, Washington
- Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Texas
- Naval Medical Center (Balboa), San Diego, California (NMCSD)
- Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, MD
