With 5,000 returning veterans arriving annually, the Greater Houston Area has the second-largest and fastest-growing veteran population in the United States.

Founded in 2014, NextOp is a Nonprofit that helps veterans translate their exceptional military training into successful civilian careers


We Are A Nonprofit

NextOp operates almost exclusively through charitable donations from our corporate partners, charitable foundations, individuals, local economic development agencies and even the government.

Soldiers are briefed on GoArmyEd programs available through their Tuition Assistance benefits. All Soldiers beginning education programs and those making changes to current courses of study must engage the online VIA decision support tool before meeting with counselors to select a specific program.

What We Do

NextOp helps bridge the gap between veterans in need of work and aging industries that desperately need the skills our veteran clients have to offer by recruiting and placing currently transitioning military professionals into meaningful careers where their unique skills and experience are fully-utilized.

Soldier & Worker

How We Do It

We work one-on-one with mid-level enlisted veterans to help them understand how their military training and experiences translate into valued qualifications in the business community, connecting veterans to existing job openings that match their skill-sets and mentoring them through and beyond the job hire.
