Workshops for Warriors is a nonprofit school that trains, certifies, and helps place Veterans, Wounded Warriors, and Transitioning Service Members into advanced manufacturing careers. Students earn nationally recognized portable and stackable credentials.
The grant will support an infrastructure growth project that will expand the advanced manufacturing training programs and prepare to accept GI Bill. Specifically, funding will be used to hire the additional staff that is required to manage the GI Bill requirements and add additional classes. GI Bill accreditation will allow veterans using GI Bill benefits to complete Workshops for Warriors training by using the GI Bill to cover tuition as well as a living stipend for room and board.
