December 28, 2015

Abstract

More than one million veterans will transition to civilian life between 2011 and 2016. Finding a job will one of their greatest challenges because veterans often have trouble translating their military experience to the civilian workplace in ways that attracts employers. The United Services Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP), which provides apprenticeships registered with US Department of Labor based on military occupation, could play an important role in translating skills learned in the military to civilian settings. This study reports on the implementation of USMAP, assesses evaluation options, and discusses implications for policy.
