Helmets to Hardhats

Helmets to Hardhats is a public/private partnership to created to assist returning U.S. armed forces personnel in their transition to civilian career paths. The Helmets to Hardhats program allows returning servicemen direct entry into the Joint Labor/Management Apprenticeship Programs of Indiana's union construction industry. This public/private partnership saves taxpayer dollars by reducing the transition period that military personnel typically experience upon discharge and allows these individuals to obtain associate's degrees from Ivy Tech State College.
