VETERAN TRANSITION WORKSHOP PARTNERS & SPONSORS

NextOp Veterans

NextOp recruits, trains, and places high-performing middle-enlisted military leaders into Industry careers.

NextOp provides companies with world-class, skilled candidates and coaches them on how to be effective employees. Our mentors work with each transitioning veteran to adjust to their new roles and cultivate the necessary skills to excel in field work, increasing satisfaction and reducing turnover for these positions. We serve those who have served so many—our hardworking veterans.

New Orleans Business Alliance

NOLABA, a non-profit organization, is led by a 17-member board of directors, composed of a cross section of New Orleans leaders, including the Mayor and representatives of the city’s diverse industries. As the city’s official economic development partnership and the hub of its business community, NOLABA can help inform, educate and prepare you to capitalize on the many opportunities New Orleans has to offer.

Bastion Community

Bastion, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is an intentionally designed neighborhood in New Orleans for returning warriors and families. Through our powerful community model which incubates meaningful relationships that endure for a lifetime, we will sustain a thriving recovery from the wounds and casualties of war.​

Travis Manion Foundation

TMF is strengthening America’s national character. In an increasingly divisive cultural climate, they unite and strengthen communities. Our nation needs role models that inspire and we should look no further than the civic assets already living in our communities. Veterans and families of the fallen are leading the charge, pushing us to be better versions of ourselves and improving our collective character.

New Orleans VFW

The VFW was founded in 1899 by veterans of the Spanish American War, and there have been posts in New Orleans since the early 20th Century. VFW Post 8973 was founded by World War II and Korean War Veterans who lived in the Irish Channel Neighborhood and it thrived for decades. As the older generation passed away, the Post went into decline and was almost shuttered. A generation of veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan have revived the Post and it has become a place where returning vets can gather and re-kindle the sense of camaraderie they felt while in uniform.
