Caregiver Fellowship Program

The Hiring Our Heroes Caregiver Fellowship Program is a brand-new initiative that provides caregivers of wounded warriors with professional training, networking, and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. The professional development and direct connection to local employers offered through the program enable caregivers to quickly build or re-build their networks and gain localized job experience. Participating host companies gain access to a highly skilled and educated talent pool.

Caregiver Fellowship Program Details

The paid fellowship is 6 weeks in length and is offered in a growing number of host cities around the country. Fellowship candidates are carefully matched with participating companies based on the specific skills of the candidate and the preferences of both parties. Fellows then undergo exclusive on-the-job training at their host company, gaining new skill sets and an opportunity to showcase their abilities. This real-world experience is augmented by weekly educational sessions for the cohort of fellows, held in a classroom setting and/or onsite with host companies.
