American Freedom Foundation honors, serves and supports Veterans, military service members, and their families. We aim to help their transition to the civilian workforce through partnerships with military focused organizations.
There’s Experienced and then There’s Veteran
Today’s Vets are among the most highly-qualified candidates for a variety of jobs in any workplace. Their military experience extends well beyond academic achievements and vocational training, while their dedication and work ethic is second to none.
Making An Impact
American Freedom Foundation offers several resources and partners that help Veterans and their families. Warriors To The Workforce hiring events have helped thousands find civilian employment opportunities. Scholarships valued in excess of $9.2 million have been awarded to date to dependents through the AFF/Kaplan University Military Family Scholarship Program. The AFF concert series has raised $1.5 million for organizations that directly serve and support our Veterans and their families.
Meet a few brave Veterans and their families who have made successful transitions to civilian life. See first-hand how AFF resources have had an impact in their story.
