Working in tandem with the national office of Helmets to Hardhats, a national nonprofit organization that introduces military vets to career opportunities in construction, the Construction Careers Foundation is building a Minnesota Helmets to Hardhats program, supported by the Minnesota Legislature. The mission of Helmets to Hardhats is to recruit, retain, assist and support the participation of National Guard, reserve, and active-duty military members and veterans in construction trades apprenticeship programs registered with the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry.
Activities covered under the grant also include connecting active members and veterans with career training and employment opportunities in the building and construction industries.
Helmets to Hardhats Minnesota is led by Justin Rost, sheet metal worker with Local 10 and active member of the U.S. Army Reserve.
