Helmets to Hardhats (H2H) is dedicated to helping National Guard, Reserve, retired and transitioning active-duty military members connect to quality career and training opportunities in one of America's most challenging and rewarding industries - the construction industry. After registering with H2H, candidates can browse hundreds of career and training opportunities and forward a profile to career providers electronically from the H2H site. Also, as a registered H2H candidate, users will be contacted by a designated H2H Regional Director, who are well-informed program advocates who possess either a strong military background or building trades experience or, as in many cases, both. The directors help determine which craft is the best fit and provide practical and valuable information about career opportunities. The Center for Military Recruitment, Assessment and Veterans Employment (CMRAVE) administers the H2H program and is a non-profit Section 501(c)(3).
