We need your help to fund REBOOT Workshops in support of our troops.
We currently only have funding to offer one Workshop per month and are experiencing a tremendous backlog. However, we have the capability to offer more Workshops if funded. At present we are not receiving government funding and rely totally on public contributions. It costs $2,500 per student and is at no cost to the service member, veteran or their spouse.

Veteran service members continue to face a number of reintegration challenges when returning home, including physiological and behavioral disorders, broken identity, cultural gaps between military and civilian life, limited professional and social networks, lack of civilian work experience, translating military experience into civilian job skills, and veteran suicide.
“The toughest battle they will face is the journey home; as many have to battle – unemployment, homelessness, suicide, drug abuse, depression, and anxiety.”
Maurice D. Wilson, MCPO, USN (Ret) President & Co-founder, NVTSI/REBOOT
As one of thousands of employers across the country we are counting on your support to help ALL of our troops find their place as a civilians. Each year over 200,000 service members transition from military service with thousands living in local areas seeking a new life. Many of them struggle to enter the civilian job market despite the skills and experience they developed in the military.
Recent surveys reveal that:
- Over 90% of returning service members do not feel ready to enter the civilian job market.
- A same number have not defined their new career goals and are unclear about next steps.
- Many struggle to overcome anxiety, self-doubt , and negative thoughts.
- A big number feel lost after living the in highly structured and disciplined world of the military.
While most service members are routed through the Department of Defense Transition GPS Program (T-GPS), the T-GPS program primarily focuses on vocational transition and lacks evidence-based outcomes to enhance self-efficacy.
As a result, many stakeholders are seeking an alternative solution to this urgent issue. To answer this call, NVTSI’s REBOOT Workshops™ have proven to be one of the most effective solutions for veterans returning home. After seven years of operation REBOOT has become the premier reintegration program (in the nation) that effectively addresses the personal and social needs of the transitioning service members/veterans, and is seeking to expand REBOOT nation-wide.
