Military And Veterans





Transitioning Military
and Veterans
Military personnel returning to civilian life often need alternative skills and career options beyond what they did in the military and outside of the GI Bill traditional education route. HBI’s transitioning military and veteran program creates a unique opportunity through job readiness and career connections that inspire hope, confidence, and long-term success for graduates in a career field that desperately needs their skills and experience.

HBI also wants to ensure that those who have courageously served in our military never find themselves out of work or living on the street. That is why we work closely with partners such as The Home Depot Foundation and Habitat for Humanity to ensure that service members leave the military prepared for their next chapter in civilian life. Our skilled trades training programs for transitioning military members and veterans are also available to their spouses and/or dependents.

HBI is a member of the DoD Skillbridge Program. With the approval of their chain of command, transitioning service members in each region served by an HBI training facility can participate in the cost-free 12-week program. No military or GI Bill funding is required as part of the Department of Defense (DoD) SkillBridge program. During the program, service members spend up to 75% of their time in hands-on training, earn professional certifications, and receive job placement support. Prior to enrolling in the DoD SkillBridge Transitioning Military Program, service members complete an interview with HBI staff.

The transitioning military programs located at Eglin Career Center, Jacksonville Career Center, and the BuildStrong Academy of Orlando are sponsored by HBI and the State of Florida, Department of Economic Opportunity.
