Are you an active duty wounded, ill, or injured Service member looking for a civilian educational or employment opportunity to help you prepare for your transition out of the military?
The Education and Employment Initiative (E2I) is a Department of Defense (DoD) program that assists wounded, ill and injured Service members early in their recovery process to identify their skills and match them with the education and career opportunities that will help them successfully transition to civilian life.
E2I’s collaborative effort with the Department of Labor and Department of Veterans Affairs gives wounded, ill, and injured Service members access to the Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Services program which aids with their recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration into the civilian environment. These efforts, in conjunction with military transition services, provide the necessary support for wounded, ill, and injured Service members to achieve their goals.
Our Regional Coordinators
E2I’s Regional Coordinators – individuals who work with the wounded, ill, and injured Service members to identify skills, career opportunities that match those skills, and determine educational
requirements for a desired career path – are located throughout the United States.
The Regional Coordinators establish and maintain relationships with private, public, and nonprofit sector employers interested in helping place wounded, ill, and injured Service members into new careers. They also collaborate with educational programs that supply training, certifications, and licenses necessary for future careers.
By identifying local work-force trends and needs, as well as establishing strategic partnerships with employers from a vast spectrum of industries, the Regional Coordinators assist both, the employers and the Service members, in making successful career choices.
The Education and Employment Initiative is available to all wounded, ill, and injured Service members in all branches of the Military Services, as well as all components of those Services – Active, Guard and Reserve. If you are a wounded, ill or injured Service member looking for an opportunity like this or are a Transition Coordinator and know of a wounded, ill or injured Service member who would benefit from E2I, please contact us at: E2I.OSD@mail.mil or contact your E2I Regional Coordinator today!
