How We Help
Veteran unemployment is more than just about a lack of jobs, or a lack of motivation. It's about geographic inflexibility, training, and opportunity. We're here to help.
Transitioning to civilian life is tough. The National Foundation for Veteran Redeployment (NFVR) is a non profit entity seeking to improve the welfare of our nation's soldiers upon the end of their military careers. The staples of that transition include finding veterans' utility in the work force, and outfitting them with the training to become productive members of society.
We provide support for unemployed soldiers in the following ways:
- Vocational Training Scholarships: We will fund a certified program to help you get a job. Past programs we’ve funded include Roughneck and Mud School (oil and gas industries) and Commercial Drivers’ Licenses (oil, gas, shipping industries). If you believe you’ve found an employer in the oil and gas industry willing to hire you if you attend a vocational school, you may apply for vocational training funding from our foundation. It is not necessary to be employed by a partner employer to receive this benefit. *Please see requirements below.
- 100% job placement: If you qualify for our program, we train you and guarantee you a job in our nation's emerging oil and gas sector. All candidates are required to meet basic criteria.
- Mentorship and Networking: No matter your line of work, learning from those who have gone before you is the key to success. We’ve assembled a team of mentors from every industry in the nation to give you the resources and inspiration you need to succeed in your field. We want you to be more than just a successful professional. We want you to be a leader in your industry. Our mentors will make sure you have the foresight you need to get there. This service is available to any veteran who wishes to improve his/her professional network.
Eligibilty Requirements for Vocational Training Scholarships:
- At least 21 years of age
- You possess a valid DD-214 service record with honorable discharge (current active duty personnel are encouraged to apply but funding will not be granted until a valid DD-214 is received)
- You have completed at least one enlistment in active duty or combat tour with reserve unit
- You don't have any legal convictions
- You seek employment in the oil and gas industry
- Pass a urinary drug test
