The Nexstar Legacy Foundation is proud to announce that the new Troops to Trades website launched today, on Veterans Day!

The Troops to Trades program is dedicated to helping veterans by providing them with career placement opTroops To Trades websitetions, training grants and
scholarships to help them find careers in the heating, air conditioning, plumbing and electrical residential service industries.

Careers in this industry are an excellent fit for veterans. These careers call for skills that veterans often developed during their military service, including:

  • Problem solving
  • Working independently while being accountable to the team
  • Disciplined work habits
  • Respectful communication
  • Desire to help others

The goal of the Troops To Trades program  is to help veterans find work right away, by providing connections to companies looking to hire apprentice or inexperienced employees and train them. To facilitate this we provide training grants that give veterans the skills to start work within weeks, along with scholarships for veterans currently enrolled in an accredited school program.
