WASHINGTON (Mar. 18, 2019) – Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) announces a new partnership with The Honor Foundation (THF), a nonprofit that has developed a nationally recognized transition program for the military’s special operations forces community. This program helps special operators successfully transition from military to civilian life and attain gainful careers.
This $100,000 grant will provide funding for fellows to participate in THF’s Transition Institute, which combines one-on-one executive coaching and industry mentoring, three months of class instruction, and access to an elite, nationwide professional network. The grant will also support fellows attending a THF TREK, the capstone immersion experience of the program that provides access to some of nation’s leading businesses.
“Returning to civilian life and finding purpose can be a challenge for any service member,” said WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington. “Fortunately, organizations like The Honor Foundation understand that this critically important and life-changing transition can be effectively managed with the right resources. We’re proud to work alongside them as they help our nation’s warriors find a new mission in their civilian careers.”
“We are thrilled to be working alongside Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that has already driven such powerful change in the lives of countless veterans,” said THF CEO Matt Stevens. “It’s an honor for The Honor Foundation to serve our Special Operations Forces in their transitions to civilian life and its humbling that Wounded Warrior Project sees the value of that mission. We’re grateful for their support and excited to grow our impact on the lives of transitioning Special Operators.”
