THF is an incredible program that helped we work through the ‘mission analysis’ and ‘target development’ when considering what to do next after 32 years of service. They assembled an absolute world class team to help guide you through the process and it’s helped by joining a COHORT of fellow teammates who are in the same process. Again, an incredible program, would (and have) highly recommend!
After 20 years in the Navy, THF filled my cup and has expanded my aperture and given me a newfound excitement for my next chapter. THF provided me with so many experiences, resources, and tools that I had never been exposed to in my career. From identifying my strengths, polishing success stories from my past, interview night, local Trek, and an incredible Trek to Boston, my experience in the 12-weeks was absolutely priceless and unforgettable. I will always be grateful to the staff, volunteers, and donors for this absolutely priceless experience, as will my family.
When I went into the program I had no idea what to expect. But soon after it became clear to me the value that THF offers. I was definitely the guy that thought my experience wouldn’t translate to any job besides contracting and law enforcement. I was dead wrong. They taught us how to look at our experience in a different light. All of it is applicable to any industry you wish to find yourself in. They showed us what we want to do and more importantly what we don’t want to do in our next career. I will be forever grateful for everything I learned from THF. Plus you go through it with a team. People who have been there and people who are in the exact same spot. Highly recommend that anyone who can, should attend THF.
The Honor Foundation is an exceptional program. It’s structure enables you to understand your skills and attributes from your past career and translate it into a marketable corporate structure. THF is extremely helpful for not only transitioning out of the military, but also thoroughly preparing you for the next mission.
I can’t say enough great things about the people and program from The Honor Foundation! The program gave me invaluable insights into my value proposition after exiting service and gave me the tools to connect my passions to a new profession. The staff, instructors, and coaches are all top-tier professionals that are clearly dedicated to helping others succeed. Two thumbs-up, 5-stars, and 10 out of 10 experience!
