YOUR PIPELINE TO AMERICA’S PROVEN LEADERS


Every year, more than 200,000 U.S. service members return to civilian life.  Heroes MAKE America is The Manufacturing Institute’s initiative to build a pipeline between the military and manufacturing.   

Our signature program is a full-time Department of Defense–approved career skills program aimed at connecting transitioning service members, veterans and military spouses to great careers in manufacturing and arm them with the skills and qualifications to excel.  The program also works to educate manufacturers on how to recruit, hire and retain talent from the military community. The manufacturing industry’s historic levels of optimism and growth also underline a burgeoning crisis- manufacturers are creating more open jobs than there are skilled workers to fill them.  

So, at a time when the industry is facing a workforce crisis, why would we not connect our nation’s heroes to rewarding manufacturing careers? Manufacturers get top-quality talent, and service members get top-quality career opportunities—it’s a win-win.

Heroes MAKE America is open to service members within their last six months of military service, veterans and military spouses. Heroes enrolls transitioning service members while they are still on active duty, enabling them to continue to receive military pay and benefits.
