Troops to Teachers

American Service men and women

Troops to Teachers (TTT) provides assistance to transitioning service members and veterans in beginning new careers in K-12 public, charter and Bureau of Indian Affairs schools.  TTT provides counseling and referral services to assist them with meeting state certification requirements and subsequently helps them secure a teaching position.  Financial assistance may also be available for eligible service members and veterans.  To determine your eligibility and to register for the program, please visit the Troops to Teachers national website.

School district personnel interested in hiring veterans may contact the local Troops to Teachers program for more information.

  • Project MOTIVATE, a military veterans support program at Rowan University
