Industry-Specific Skills Training For Military Spouses & Transitioning Service Members

HireHeroesUSAOnward to Opportunity (O2O) is a cost-free career skills program that connects transitioning service members, active duty military spouses, and Members of the National Guard and Reserve to high-demand careers in customer service and information technology. Delivered by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University and supported by the Schultz Family Foundation, Onward to Opportunity partners with leading veteran service organizations and private sector companies to connect transitioning service members, military spouses and veterans with meaningful employment opportunities at companies across the country.

Onward to Opportunity is specifically addressing challenges facing military spouses. Frequent moves make it difficult for military spouses to develop a career and contribute to the financial stability of the military household. According to a 2012 U.S. Census survey, employed military spouses earn approximately 38% less than their civilian counterparts. O2O was founded with the mission of tackling this problem head on.

Onward to Opportunity uniquely empowers transitioning service members and spouses by providing them access to training which is tailored to specific opportunities. Never before has such a clearly defined path to employment been available for job seekers in this category. Training tracks are not designed to meet theoretical employer needs, but are designed in partnership with specific employers to meet specific hiring needs.

Whether you are new to the workforce or you are ready to re enter it, O2O offers great tools to support your journey! Sign up now for career training at O2O.
