Transition GPS Tracks

In addition to the Transition GPS Core Curriculum, you may also choose to attend one of three optional Transition GPS Tracks.  The track you will attend will be determined by your personal goals.

The three tracks are:

  • Education  – Accessing Higher Education – 2 days
  • Career Technical Training  – 2 day
    • The workshop is designed to assist you in:
      • Defining technical career goals
      • Identifying required credentials
      • Finding career technical training opportunities
      • Identifying local Veteran resources
      • Utilizing your VA education benefit
  • Entrepreneurship – Starting Your Own Business – 2 days
    • You will learn if starting a business is right for you, if your business idea is feasible and much more!
    • After the workshop you will have created a Feasibility Analysis Deliverable that will serve as the basis for future business planning efforts. It is designed to assist you in developing an ‘actionable’ plan for subsequent efforts focused on launching a new venture.
    • The workshop is open to transitioning service members, veterans, or spouses interested in starting a business.
    • The Boots to Business workshop is offered in collaboration among the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University (IVMF), the DoD and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
