We connect the military community with civilian companies to create economic opportunity and a strong and diversified workforce. Through local programs and events, we’re working to create a movement across America.
The Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program is an innovative 12-week program that provides transitioning service members with professional training and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. The professional development offered through the program prepares candidates for a smooth transition into meaningful civilian careers. Participating corporations benefit by gaining access to the best and brightest transitioning service members, while also developing a more comprehensive understanding of the veteran job market.

The Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Professional Network (MSPN) provides military spouses with career development and networking opportunities in military communities around the world. An integral part of Hiring Our Heroes’ Military Spouse Program, MSPN will empower military spouses at a grassroots level year-round.
Local MSPN events and programming connect military spouses with established networks, giving military spouses access to local business leaders, peers, and mentors, and support in their career development. MSPN also provides military spouses with online career development resources. Military spouses in similar occupations support each other in online communities and share career advice to enhance the career prospects of members of the community. Learn more.
On March 20, 2019, the U.S Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes, in collaboration with city of Leavenworth and the Leavenworth-Lansing Area Chamber of Commerce, launched the Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zone (MSEEZ) in Leavenworth, Kansas.
Established to connect military spouses with companies committed to hiring, MSEEZ are collaborative efforts among the local business, civic, and military communities that establish employment networks in municipalities around the country. Learn more.
