Troops To Trades
Are you a veteran looking for a new job opportunity? The Troops To Trades program offers scholarships and training opportunities to individuals who have dedicated parts of their lives to the armed services for the United States.
The Nexstar Legacy Foundation is dedicated to attracting talented individuals to the heating, air conditioning, plumbing and electrical industries, by inspiring these people to discover the prestige, earning power and stability of careers in these fields. The foundation accomplishes this by being the leading resource for information on careers and training, as well as a source of financial aid.
Our 2014 goal is to bring technical and/or service skills training to 40+ veterans and help more than 150 veterans find jobs in the industry. There are two scholarships now available: Troops to Trades Professional Scholarships for veterans interested in attending a Service System, HVAC or Sewer Sales or Customer Service Representative/Dispatch Service Representative Training. Also, Build-a-Tech training scholarships for veterans interested in learning a technical trade. All scholarship cover costs of training, travel and food and lodging.
