The purpose of the Troops to Teachers: Pathway to Certification NGO is to continue to recruit military veterans into the teaching profession, support the military veterans as they complete preparation programs and meet certification requirements. Support will include program entry and admissions guidance, academic advisement, successful navigation of the certification process and varied instructional delivery options. The grantee will partner with at least one high-needs school to provide clinical practice opportunities and opportunities for possible full-time teaching placements. The program should also consider district needs by intentionally recruiting military veteran teachers that may fill hard-to-staff positions.
