Warriors to Workforce Program (W2W) a separate three-year track for our wounded warriors. This program was established to help our nation’s heroes meet the college education requirements (24 business credits) for entry into the contract specialist career field. This track also offers peak performance training, focused on managing mental, emotional, and physiological responses to perform at peak levels under pressure and stress. The program provides significant support to our Veterans with service-connected disabilities and leverages GI Bill and Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment benefits so that interns’ primary focus is on their academic studies. Among the program’s prominent features, training through a cohort model provides a built-in support system that mirrors the team environment and camaraderie that Veterans experience in the military. Through this model, our interns to-date have achieved an impressive grade point average of 3.5 and are performing exceptionally well on the job. Additionally, with the strong transition support we provide, the VA is experiencing impressive retention rates of greater than 95 percent. The W2W Program focuses on empowering wounded Veterans to obtain in-demand skills and competencies to continue serving their country through a Federal career.
