Home Builders Institute offers full scholarship training for Florida veterans. The national nonprofit building trades training organization provides quality training for more than 170 windows of opportunity in the industry & job placement assistance.
The HBI Veterans Program, which started in 2012, empowers our nation's veterans with the skills and experience they need to secure meaningful careers in the construction industry. In 2015, the program expanded to include soon-to-separate military personnel. HBI launched the program at Fort Stewart Army Base in Georgia with partners, the Bob Woodruff Foundation and Soldier for Life. Students are active duty service members within six months of separation.
The program uniquely supports transitioning military and veterans at every stage of the employment continuum—successfully connecting, assessing, training, certifying, placing them in high-growth construction careers, and charting participant progress for a minimum of one year.
