THF has been life changing. It has helped me reshape my perspective on transitioning out of the military. I originally had my doubts, but THF has done an exceptional job helping service members find their identity outside of the military. It also provides a panel of experts with real world experience to provide mentorship and answer any questions. The experience was a true joy and I am greatly appreciative for this opportunity.
THF helped me progress from believing I can be successful after the Army to knowing I will be successful. With THF’s guidance I have examined and re-examined myself, what I want, and what is most important to me. Now I feel confident and prepared to take the next step.
THF provided me with the tools necessary to translate what made me successful in the special operations community into a narrative that is understood by the private sector. The program encouraged me to take the time to reflect on what I truly want to get out of the next season of my personal and professional life. Instead of anxious, I feel excited about the possibilities ahead.
After 31 years service I was experiencing significant anxiety as my retirement approached. THF was absolutely instrumental in helping me learn who I am, what I value and polish the skills to give me the confidence I needed. I would recommend this program for anyone transitioning…. Especially if you have been in for a very long time like myself. I’m honored to have been afforded the opportunity to participate. Thank you THF
The Honor Foundation provided me a new outlook on life outside of the military. I felt stressed and lost during my transition. THF has helped me learn more about myself and my interests. My vision for the future is more narrow. I have a new set of goals that drive me to go out and accomplish them, giving me that similar motivated feeling when I joined the military. I cannot say thank you enough!
After networking, I discovered my true calling: to aid the men and women of Special Operations Commands during their transitional phase. With the assistance of The Honor Foundation, I now have the skills to be part of the process that helps so many individuals find their path in life. It is truly an honor for me to be a part of this effort.
The Honor Foundation experience was the perfect capstone to my military career. The Honor Foundation taught me how to appreciate my own service, and also how to capitalize on the skills I gained throughout my service. My wife and I have nothing but profound gratitude for the Honor Foundation Staff, volunteers and sponsoring organizations that make so much possible for transitioning service members. “Thank you” is not enough.
It was my honor to support the program. Each of the fellows I met with are gentlemen, well intentioned and very engaged to learn. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be part of this transition community.
This program was a game-changer for me. I didn’t realize how truly unprepared I was going into retirement. Now I feel like I’ve been given a detailed map and cheat codes. My outlook has completely changed and the trepidation has faded away. Thank You!
I came into this a full skeptic. I am leaving this program a believer, with a purpose, a direction, and some good friends.
THF was a fantastic growth experience. Cally and Kelsey really helped shine a light on the coming uncertainty. I learned my WHY, understood my strengths and weaknesses, and met a lot of great people. The most impactful aspects were story night and mock interviews. These moments allowed us to articulate who we are, what drives us, and practice the skills being taught. I couldn’t ask for a better program or group of coordinators.
The Honor Foundation (THF) assisted me in identifying the gaps in my transition to the civilian sector. Further the program exposed me to an array of industries all of which were very interesting to include some that I thought I would not have had any interest in. THF wasn’t just a tool for my “tool box” but a whole “work shop” in of itself where I was afforded the opportunity to expound on my talents that were there but I could not see.
The coaches, mentors, and staff provided amazing knowledge and enhanced our skills that each of us possess but didn’t necessarily know how to acknowledge. The past 12 weeks were such an emotional rollercoaster but I would never change the path I took.
A life changing experience. THF’s commitment to preparing special operations veterans for their transition to life after the military is incredible. When you start this program, you join a team of talented professionals and veterans, all of whom are there for one reason, to help you succeed. It has been the most humbling experience of my life.
The Trek is where it all came together for me. It was such a great opportunity to experience culture in a company, to interact with the people, and to find out where or where not to work.
The opportunity to spend 8-10 hours a week getting to purely focus on the transition is invaluable. Paired with the people I was in class with and the amazing coaches & mentors, it’s a truly transformative experience that we get to go through together.
A life changing program that I am so incredibly grateful for the ability to attend. I really love how the program took us down to our roots and we learned about ourselves before diving into resumes, job interviews, etc. I went into that block knowing what my strengths were and what I brought to the table.
I was able to audit the virtual program as I went through class 2 in San Diego in Fall 2014. Having only had one job since retirement in March 2015, this was an opportunity to sharpen the saw and take advantage of the Transition program in its up to date format. It has been very impactful and a significatn part of the journey my family and I are on. Fresh perspective and clarity were the key benefits of this program.
My time at THF was truly transformative and informative. The experience eased my fears about transition, providing valuable insights. The knowledgeable coaches and presenters, along with the dedicated volunteers and staff, genuinely inspired me. Thanks to THF, I now have a clearer understanding of my worth and the tools to confidently translate it into my journey ahead.
The THF program provided an opportunity to allow my self to be vulnerable and share my ideas openly with peers, coaches and mentors. This practice provided a safe environment that contributed to an increase in my self reflection. And while self reflecting I was able to confirm my priorities and soul search a few ideas worth exploring. My favorite portions of the course were the story telling among peers. It was helpful to meet and hear from so many talented servicemen and women serving within the Special Operations community. This venue afforded me the opportunity to cherry pick great ideas to consider during my transition planning. The other favorite venue were the sessions with coach “Jay” Jenkins. I found my self frequently speaking with a friend that I have never met personally. His feedback was priceless and provided multiple nuggets of consideration as I was drafting my transition plan. Ultimately, I needed the time to reflect and think about my options and preferences. THF provided me with this space and multiple tools to prepared me for the transition. Moving forward, I will recommend to anyone transitioning from the service.
THF has been tremendous source of information and knowledge in helping me through my transition from the military. The formula that folks at THF were able to put together to help prepare me and other services members to find the answer to “I don’t know what I want to do when I grow up” is truly impressive. There is not one section of the course better than the other, because every section builds off the other to help provide an ultimate product. That product is, a retiree with the upmost preparation for a new beginning after service. I want to give a special thank you to all the staff at THF for the work that they do behind the scenes to make THF happen. Thank you!
THF gave me the tools, organization, and confidence to properly transition to the appropriate career for me.
THF provided important and useful tools to aid me in my search for my next career. The Faculty and Coaches provided key advice and mentorship throughout the process. The exercises and events greatly improved my ability to find areas of interest and to perform well during interviews.
I had a lot of doubt and anxiety about my transition out of the Army after 21 years. I was sure I was going to screw it up somehow and not develop a plan to be successful. Being a Fellow in THF has helped me so much. I feel very confident now regrading resume development, interviewing, industry research, and telling my story to potential employers.
The THF program helped me solidify my plan for transition. The times spent exploring my personal preferences, strengths and why was extremely beneficial, and I am very grateful for the time and support the THF staff put into helping me. I would recommend any transitioning SOF member explore THF to help them find their way.
The Honor Foundation was a game changer for me and my family. I came into the program convinced I knew exactly what I was going to do in the exact field; and to be honest not that excited about that. The instructors, coaches, and coursework from THF allowed me to view myself through a completely different lens. Without that I never would have been able to get to the level of clarity on myself in what I have to offer to a company other than a specific skill set. THF didn’t pressure me to change; they enabled me to see the best version of my business self. Then THF turned around and demonstrated how to capture that into a resume and sell these qualities in an interview. Now I am very excited about my next chapter and know I will find the upmost fulfillment in the process and where I land.
I would have been lost without The Honor Foundation. I learned very quickly that I couldn’t have done this on my own
“Outstanding transition program!” My confidence has doubled thanks to the in-depth program offered during the virtual class. The coaching and staff were phenomenal. Impactful lessons learned with resume writing, interview approaches, and finding your “why” were game changers for me. I feel fully prepared for my transition, thanks to THF.
The Honor Foundation helped me discover the reason I did what I did all these years, and helped me sift through the noise to find my purpose. After this the THF staff encouraged critical thinking about how my purpose could be applied professionally, and personally. Finally, the program allowed me to see my value, probably the most important part, because when you know what you value is, you begin to see how you can benefit others for the rest of your life.
The cadre, the curriculum, and speakers were simply incredible. The Honor Foundation helped me define my worth as a transitioning service member. The alumni welcomed me with guidance and were ready to help in any way they could. I recommend this to all SOF service members transitioning.
The information and skills that I learned in the Honor Foundation directly led me to my new internship and future job with an amazing company. I met and interviewed with over nine other companies and was able to choose the right company that aligned with my strengths, values and desires. I start the day after graduation.
The Honor Foundation was an amazing experience at the start of my transition from the military. The Honor Foundation’s program helped eased uncertainties I had about transition and solidified my plan afterward. The Honor Foundations resources and speakers are second to none. If you are special operations veteran transitioning out of the military, you are doing yourself a disservice if you don’t attend The Honor Foundation. I have found myself mentoring my colleagues who didn’t attend The Honor Foundation with what I’ve learned through the program.
THF gave me something to aim at, and taught me how to move toward it. The program is just as applicable for a 34 year O6 as it is for a 12 year E7. They drastically shortened my learning curve on how to transition, and in an environment where you’ll be surrounded by peers just as afraid as you are.
This is a phenomenal course and a true success builder! Following the process enabled me to refine my optic of what is important to me and to set me up with the proper tools to make my transition to civilian life! I am truly grateful for this program and all the volunteers and donors that make this program possible. Thank you!
Standing on the precipice of a new chapter, I found myself adrift in a sea of uncertainty. The transition from the regimented world of the military to the untamed expanse of civilian life was akin to navigating a treacherous terrain without a compass. Amidst this bewildering labyrinth, The Honor Foundation (THF) emerged as a beacon of hope, illuminating the path ahead. They extended a lifeline of unwavering support, guiding me through the labyrinthine complexities of civilian life. THF’s unwavering belief in the potential of veterans to excel beyond their military service is a testament to their resolute commitment to shaping the leaders of tomorrow. Their investment in the next generation of changemakers is an invaluable contribution to our collective future. THF is more than just an organization; it’s a tribe, a brotherhood forged from shared experiences and indomitable camaraderie. They stand as a testament to the enduring spirit of service, nurturing the transition of SOF veterans into pillars of strength and inspiration for generations to come.
The Honor Foundation program has been a huge blessing to me. I came into the transition process unsure of what I wanted to do next, unsure of what my purpose was, and unsure if I could find something fulfilling for my next season of life instead of simply doing defense contract work because “it’s what I know”. THF showed me that I was not alone in these thoughts and feelings, that it was ok to need some help doing something as big as transitioning out of the military, and then equipped me with the tools to do it. Through THF’s program, the support of the THF staff, and the brotherhood and support of my cohort, I am now confidently moving forward with transition. I’ve determined my purpose and am confident that I will find a fulfilling role in the next season of my life. I’m equipped with the tools and building the network to help determine what the next steps will be and am sure that I can connect with the right people to not only make a living, but to live my life in accordance with my purpose, goals, and values.
The THF really helped me focus on me! Learning and verifying my strengths and themes really assisted in finding out what really makes me… me. Thanks to the THF, I now have my LinkedIn and Resume up to par. I have benefitted from each and every one of the modules we went over. But it was just about learning how to but more importantly learning how to capitalize them in my future endeavors. And one of my cups of coffee has led to a very promising position!
When I started The Honor Foundation, I had tunnel vision of my goal in my next career path. However, everyone I knew that had recently left the military had told me to do this program, so I was like ok, I will do it. As I followed the program, had my cups of coffee, and interacted with my coach, I could truly find myself and realize that what I wanted in life was not what I was pursuing. Now, I am proud to say that after using the techniques taught. Through this program, I was able to get into a graduate school of engineering to pursue a Master of Computer Science. When I first spoke to the admissions advisor, it was clear academically that I needed to meet some of the pre-requisite classes required. Still, because of my experience and story, the college waived these requirements, leading to my acceptance. I encourage any of my fellow members of the SOF community to trust the process and promise that if you put in the work to the program, you will see the rewards.
I didn’t know how lonely transition could be until it happened. THF made transitioning from the Navy, easy for lack of a better word. We all have that common apprehension of the unknown, and THF and cohort 76 reminded me to do what I’ve always done and meet things head on with the same amount of energy. While guiding me through the process of resume writing and interviewing. Above all Networking. THF was my skill bridge and I do not regret it. Thank you for everything you’ve done. It mattered!
My most impactful moment was when I met my coach for the first time. Karl Miller was a phenomenal coach and in just the short amount of time I learned so much from him. It was insuring to hear him build up my confidence. Thank you THF for assigning coaches that will empower us in our journey.
It was great to be able to put skills I have refined and used in the military and how I can put them into practical use in cooperate world. Story night is by far my favorite night, really lets you get to know the other people that are in the cohort with you.
The Honor Foundation is delivers exactly as promised; a premier transition option for transitioning service members. The work and time demands are quite extensive, so not for everyone, but if you can dedicate the required time, there is zero reason those who qualify should not apply.
THF provided insights, guidance, and introspection into transitioning that far exceeded anything I could have hoped. There is no better program out there, not just for Special Operations, but within the Department of Defense.
I liked the various assessments we took, they helped to focus in on my strengths and areas of potential employment. The various sublect matter experts (LinkedIn, resume building, networking, etc.) were great resources for building products to showcase our potential to the marketplace. The part I enjoyed most was networking with and talking to people in lots of different fields, this was invaluable in figuring out positions that would suit me and those that would not.
I wanted to say thank you to the THF staff and program for providing the knowledge on how to transition. I can honestly say where I was before the program and where I am now is a huge difference. It should be mandatory that anybody and everybody leaving the military get this level of training. Thank you again Group 75!
This experience has truly been life changing and I feel very well prepared to start the next chapter. I am forever greatful for Dan, Stephanie and Kathy for all they have done to prepare us.
Coming from the Special Operations community, I understand that quality is a valuable and rare commodity. With numerous organizations vying to assist SOF operators in transition, I chose The Honor Foundation because quality is at the heart of everything the organization does.
THF gave me the tools to exit the military and more. I have experienced a huge amount of personal growth and I feel very confident in my ability to apply my military experience to the civilian world. I cannot thank the staff enough for the passion and knowledge they brought every single day and to every personal interaction. This program has been one of the highlights of my time in military.
The Honor Foundation is unequivocally the best transition program for the military to date and wins with its curriculum, engaged network of alumni and coaches, and lifelong support. Pound for pound, it is the best return on investment for anyone transitioning out of the military. If you only have time for one program, this is it. Arguably more rewarding than a skill bridge or internship alone!
This program kept me in line with my goals and constantly reminded me of the opportunities available to me.
Such a wonderful program for transitioning SOF. It gets you dialed in and polished for the civilian sector by making your skills that you’ve acquired in your military service translated into civilian marketable skills.
My time with The Honor Foundation has been transformative, offering me valuable knowledge, extensive networking opportunities, and practical experience. The staff, guests speakers, and my fellow classmates made the journey truly enjoyable, creating a supportive environment for transitioning service members. The Mock Interviews and TREK program enhanced the cohort experience, and I am sincerely grateful to The Honor Foundation for the privilege of being part of this exceptional organization.
The Honor Foundation excels in equipping transitioning service members with the necessary skills for networking, resume building, and optimizing LinkedIn profiles, among many other valuable services. They truly go above and beyond in their commitment to preparing service members for the civilian workforce. Throughout the process, my coach, Ashley, demonstrated exceptional dedication and attentiveness. She arranged highly advantageous networking calls that expanded my opportunities with potential employers. I wholeheartedly recommend The Honor Foundation to all my fellow service members. Their expertise and support are truly unmatched.
THF has helped me tremendously throughout my transitioning phase out of the military. I went from not having any idea what the future looked like or what I wanted to do, to finding purpose again and having a focused transitioning path. If you are transitioning out and have the opportunity to be a fellow, I would highly recommend the program!
THF was an incredibly unique experience for transitioning service members. It is helpful whether you’ve been in the military for 30 years or 10 years. All of the first hand knowledge you are able to gain from the amazing opportunities THF provides is priceless.
I thought I had a good plan when I started with my Cohort. From the course and networks I realized that I did not have a good plan. THF helped me realize this and help get my on course with the right plan for me and my family. I can’t thank them enough.
Prior to The Honor Foundation I thought my experience only translated to possible employment in a defense industry or as a government civilian. The program’s first phase helped me to understand what was important to me and the type of culture I want to be part of. After meeting with numerous businesses in the local area and Chicago, I am now planning to obtain an executive MBA. Three months ago, I had no concept of what a career in business would be like and never thought I would be able to find a job in the private sector. I have connected with numerous professionals through The Honor Foundation network, receiving mentorship and advice as I prepare to retire. I can’t say enough good things about Janie and Ashley. All of The Honor Foundation staff has been immensely helpful. This program totally transformed my post-retirement plans, realigning them to what is important to me and making me excited for the opportunities ahead. The Honor Foundation community opens doors to lifelong mentorship and a family of motivated and uniquely experienced individuals.
As a transitioning SGM with over 20 years of service I knew I would be required to acclimate to an entire different culture. THF was there to highlight areas of transition into the private sector that simply never occurred to me. I now have a better understanding of how to stand out in the private sector than I ever did before.
THF is an amazing opportunity and a generous gift to the SOF Community. All leaders, administrators, guests and volunteers were top notch and helped greatly in this critical time of transition. I couldn’t be more grateful for this experience and would recommend The Honor Foundation to any transitioning SOF veteran regardless of age, rank or time served.
The Honor Foundation was a thoroughly enjoyable and eye opening experience. While I enjoyed finding my WHY statement, I found the mock interviews and networking experiences to be the highlight. Hearing both veteran and non-veteran stories and insights about employment and life have enriched my journey. Trust the process!
At first, The Honor Foundation seemed like a daunting endeavor. Balancing three months of intensive work with my full-time job was no small ask. However, I knew I was lost in my transition, and chose to make the commitment. Looking back, I’m incredibly grateful that I did.
THF’s approach resonated deeply with me. Starting with why, they delved into the core of our motivations, helping us understand our true purpose as individuals, not just operators or employees. This insight directed us toward finding fulfilling career pathways.
I wholeheartedly recommend The Honor Foundation to any of my fellow Special Operations Forces (SOF) who may be struggling to find their next “mountain to climb”. Let THF be your guide, embrace the process, put in the work, and you’re guaranteed to come out in a better place than you started.
The THF virtual program came to me at the perfect time, just as I was starting to feel overwhelmed with a pending retirement. The program covered everything I needed, in just the right amount, to help me move through re-thinking my “why,” encourage me to create a process of outreach/networking, and help reinforce my belief that I’ll be able to find a mission with impact outside of the military. The THF team is phenomenal and I can’t thank the staff, volunteers, and my classmates enough.
This transition course has been life changing and I feel armed with the skills to tackle the next chapter. I personally enjoyed the mock interviews as well as all the networking events which have helped me get to my 5 meter target. I still don’t know what I want to do but I now understand what I skills I need to apply to land me the dream job.
Of the dozens of perks that comes with joining The Honor Foundation, one main thing I want to highlight is the absolutely outstanding people you will meet through the program. The staff, coaches, speakers, volunteers, other alumni, and other cohort fellows are some of the most amazing people I have had the pleasure of working with. Trust the process and they will help you change your life.
My journey as a fellow with Class 72 of the Honor Foundation was an immersion into an elite realm, characterized by peerless leadership and exemplary standards. This transformative fellowship rewired my potential, shattered my previous perceptions of limitations, and bestowed me with a unique competitive advantage. It equipped me with unassailable resilience, amplified my confidence, and fortified a purpose-driven approach that will shape my path ahead.
The Honor Foundation opened my mind to a new perspective on my value to the workforce. I started the cohort with the mindset that I knew what I wanted to do; then I learned about myself and my skills. That insight allows you to move away from your comfort zone and find that next career in areas you never expect.
Had a great experience as part of The Honor Foundation process. Having been in the Navy nearly 30 years THF enlightened me to the opportunities that are availability on the civilian side of life and how our skills and leadership easily translate. The mentoring, resume/ LinkedIn training and exposure to industry experts are second to none and prepare you better than any TAP class. If you have the chance to attend, take it!
The skills provided by THF to help determine my future are truly remarkable. I have never taken a course that was more geared to help and support my future. As a 20 year veteran, I have only truly know the Air Force way of life and thought my next step in life was just to take another government position. THF proved the infinite choices that are out there for veterans. I am now excited about my future, especially knowing that I can still support the warfighter via other avenues!
The Honor Foundation took the transition process from an activity that makes people feel isolated and confused to one that is full of hope and possibilities. By creating a team of people and encouraging them to explore their why and future opportunities the Honor Foundation gave me a strong foundation to prepare myself and my family for retirement after 25 years in the Army. Most importantly, I have made lasting relationships with like-minded transitioning Service Members that I can count on and can count on me for assistance in the future. Thanks for making transition a team event!
As a proud alumnus of The Honor Foundation, I can say with absolute certainty that this organization changed my life. When I began my military transition process, I was unsure of what direction to start walking and how I would know I was being successful. The Honor Foundation provided the roadmap and signage to make sure my journey was my own and that I planned with my “why” in mind. Mine is to deliver ambitious energy and navigate uncertainty with conviction to inspire confidence and success!
Through the guidance of my executive coach, Holly Teska, I was able to delve deep and uncover what truly motivates me. Her steady hand in a chaotic time was invaluable, and I cannot thank her enough for all that she did for me during my time at The Honor Foundation.
But it wasn’t just Holly who made a difference in my journey. The tribe of alumni that I formed bonds with beyond the classroom was just as important. These were individuals who understood my struggles and supported me every step of the way. We may have come from different corners of the SOF enterprise, but our shared experiences brought us together in a way that I never thought possible.
Thanks to The Honor Foundation, I found my “why” and discovered a newfound sense of purpose and direction in my life. I am forever grateful for this organization and the incredible people who make it possible. If you’re a SOF veteran struggling to find your place in the civilian world, I cannot recommend The Honor Foundation enough. It truly changed my life for the better, and I know it can do the same for you.
What an amazing experience, everything about The Honor Program was top notch. As transitioning service members we are all figuring out not only our next step, but ourselves. The first phase of the program, discovering strengths and our why was crucial in discovering ourselves and the next step. Thank you for everything, I truly enjoyed this course.
Before attending THF I had no idea what I wanted to do after the military. I had a few vague ideas but nothing was concrete. I didn’t know how my skills and preferences would transfer to the private sector or what type of roles I would bring value to. Even if I did figure out what to do, I had no idea how to get there. THF taught me about my natural skills and preferences, gave me the tools to market myself and become a competitive candidate, and the exposure to opportunities I never would have had without the program. THF was a truly life-changing experience for myself and my family.
No doubt in my mind, that if I choose to walk away from government work, that I will be successful in civilian life. Our Treks confirmed, through meeting a wide variety of the civilian sector, that, they want and need our type of leadership, initiative, critical thinking, and resiliency in their workplace. I am humbled and honored to have learned so much about myself, my fellow cohort members, and what is possible in the future!
Before I got into the Honor Foundation my transition was the biggest stressor in my life for me and my family. Thanks to the The Honor Foundation I am well prepared for my transition into the private sector my waypoint is keyed in. I can climb the mountain so that my family can soar. To the Honor Foundation Staff, Sean, and Monika thank you for everything you are doing for us. I look forward to paying it forward as well.
Great program! Well thought out in a way that makes you dive deep into yourself and discover what you want in your next life.
After my career in the military, I embarked on a daunting transition journey into the civilian world that quickly eroded my self-identity and life purpose. Figuratively speaking, I was patrolling in unfamiliar territory without a map or compass at night, relying solely on my grit and intuition. After nine months out of the military, I needed a quick-reaction force, and that’s where THF stepped in and gave me those tools. This opportunity will not disappoint, and if you’re on the fence, I highly encourage you to take the plunge toward becoming the best version of yourself. My sincerest thanks to the incredible staff, coaches, and mentors at THF. I am forever grateful and will always reflect on the value of this transformative program!
I came into this program absolutely fired up already! It did not disappoint in any way! The amount of absolutely amazing people that I have met, both personally and professionally cannot be overstated!
The Fellowship has allowed me to develop a professional resume and LinkedIn profile, discover my WHY, leverage my Strengths in mock interviews, network via THF Cups of Coffee and multi-day treks, and be appointed an experienced Coach. Janie, Ashley, and Stephanie are top-notch facilitators providing world-class guest speakers. The Honor Foundation is the requisite executive fellowship preparatory transition program for all Special Operation Forces. THANK YOU!
Couldn’t recommend a better class to prepare you for the next chapter in life. The staff within The Honor Foundation guide you through 12 weeks of pure soul searching and fine tuning. I’m humbled and honored to be a THF Alumni!
Before starting The Honor Foundation I had no direction going into my transition from the Army. Now after three months of focused classes and one on one coaching sessions I have found a path to achieve my purpose. Build a network and trust the process.
I had an amazing experience with THF. The staff and coaches were first rate, offering me helpful transition and personal insight. I’ve learned a lot about myself and what I want for my family and I after I take off the uniform. I plan to continue building the personal and professional network I started at THF and I look forward to giving back n the future.
The Honor Foundation provides a critical service to our transitioning Special Operations Servicemembers. The instruction and assistance provided helped me feel 100% prepared to transition out of the Army. Not only did it put my mind at ease for a major life pivot, it gave me the tools I needed to be successful in the civilian world. Because of The Honor Foundation, I am completely confident in my skills and my ability to find success outside of the Army. This program is exactly what our transitioning Special Operations Servicemembers need and I can’t recommend it enough.
The Honor Foundation provided me with something that cannot be measured in dollars and cents. This organization clearly does more with less considering the incredible network, quality of instruction/instructors, and genuine desire to catapult talented transitioning veterans into the workforce. Honored to help all future THF alumnus any way I can.
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!
I was excited to start the next chapter in my career but had little direction. The Honor Foundation provided me with the guidance and tools required for the journey. The Honor Foundation curriculum is comparable to getting a degree in transiting. I don’t know where I would be without it.
Everyone’s transition journey is different. It can be both scary and exciting as we begin our new lives. My THF experience was different than most as a post-transition fellow. However, every aspect of the program was vital in assisting me to discover my strengths and weaknesses to my preferences and value added. The 1-1 Whyteboard session with Michael Fox was extremely helpful in finding my “WHY”. Overall, the lessons learned from THF alongside the guidance of my coach, Callie Groth, have given me the tools and opportunities to work at my dream profession exactly as I imagined it. Thank you.
THF provided me the means, time, and perspective to understand what I was really chasing after military service. Their team provided enthusiastic and positive reinforcement which allowed me to feel empowered, desired, and prepared for a rapidly evolving job market. I only hope I can ‘pay it forward’ to THF and others in my new role.
THF has given me confidence in my pursuit of a career outside of the military. It opened my eyes to opportunities and industries I didn’t know existed. I cannot be more thankful for the program, experience, and people I met along the way.
A 3-month program that completely refined me as a person leaving the service to join the civilian world.
THF provided the opportunity to reflect on my career and find out why I was so good at the things I was good at. Pairing that knowledge with my Gallup Strengths painted a clear path toward business development. Prior to THF I had no idea what business development was. Through this process I not only learned what business development was but why I would be good at this kind of work. I was offered a business development position that aligned with my top five strengths and my top three preferences before I even graduated the program. Thank you THF, you are a class act!
The THF experience is priceless. The staff is amazing and my colleagues in my cohort are super impressive. If you trust the process and are intentional about your own personal investment, options that you never have thought about will be brought to the forefront for your consideration. As I continue to utilize the tools and network provided by THF I truly believe I will be pleasantly surprised where I land. Attack your transition like you attacked your career and the first logical step is applying for a THF Cohort! BEST!
The Honor Foundation is a fantastic program for transitioning service members to discover their inner strengths, priorities, and goals. Thanks to the experiences and journey that I had, I made genuine progress towards achieving my goals in a meaningful career field. I was amazed at what I was exposed to, the relationships I built, and what I learned in such a short amount of time during the program with the help of The Honor Foundation fellows, coaches, and staff.
The THF program is truly amazing and worth the investment of your time. I wanted help finding my “why” and expanding my network. THF gave me both in spades and the confidence in the process to know I’m now on the right path. You won’t be sorry.
The Honor Foundation was extremely helpful in getting me to think regarding what I truly was capable of outside of the military. It challenged me to dig deeper into my experiences and into my training. THF was amazing and the connections are outstanding. Favorite class was a mix between the why statement and networking.
Before THF i was confused about what my next step would be and how to get it started. This experience has helped me to realize that sometimes you must let go and trust again. I know i haven’t even scratch the surface of what I’m capable of doing, but i feel more confident about my future. THF has helped me to see even though i may not understand NOW that my purpose is bigger than me, i will always have people behind me and with me during my journey. I can honestly say now and believe that “MY PAST IS NOT MY FUTURE, JUST BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T BELIEVE IN YOU, DOESN’T MEAN YOU STOP BELIEVING IN YOURSELF!
