Semper Fi Fund Apprenticeship Program

An incredible family has chosen to give to the Semper Fi Fund in memory of their brother who wished to remember those who serve. Thanks to them, we are able to facilitate the growth of some new programs. Learn about the new ways we are helping our heroes:

Semper Fi Fund Apprenticeship Program assists post-9/1 Semper Fi Fund service members, especially those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumaticthumb_IMG_2543_1024 Brain Injuries, find meaningful trades, careers, or small business opportunities through short-term vocational education and apprenticeships with trade experts.

Semper Fi Fund and America’s Fund staff work directly with motivated service members to assess readiness, personal strengths and professional interests. If a good match exists to the trades and careers offered, Apprenticeship Program staff help participants develop training/education plans, timelines and goals. This may include vocational training, community college, and/or a series of workshops. Once training is complete, staff will then help service members find apprenticeship opportunities and help establish mentoring relationships with leading industry experts.
