Welcome to Project Transition USA!
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to helping transitioning U.S. military service members and their dependents find meaningful and rewarding new careers in the civilian world.
Thousands of American troops are expected to return home to the U.S. from overseas THIS YEAR!
And due to defense cutbacks, most will be looking for new careers in the midst of a struggling economy — with countless more troops following next year and the year after that!
Here are some startling statistics. Did you know:
* Two-thirds of veterans experienced a difficult transition from military to civilian life?
* 69% of veterans report finding a job as the greatest hurdle in their transition?
* When asked about the greatest challenges with finding a job, 62% cite the current economic situation, followed by explaining how military skills translate (60%) and competing with candidates who have been in the workforce longer (46%)?
* Amongst veterans who reported they were not ready to transition to civilian life, 67% said they needed time off – to ‘figure out what to do next’ and decompress?”
