Workshops for Warriors Receives $75,000 Commitment from JPMorgan Chase



Workshops for Warriors (WFW), a nonprofit school providing Veterans free training and nationally recognized industry credentials in CAD/CAM programming, CNC machining and welding, has announced it received a $75,000 commitment from JPMorgan Chase & Co. The funding will allow WFW to provide veterans with quality training and accredited STEM educational programs.

"Veterans face significant challenges as they transition back to civilian life and focus on career development. We are grateful to JPMorgan Chase for supporting our training program as we work to improve post-service lives," said Hernàn Luis y Prado, founder of Workshop for Warriors. "We are helping Veterans gain the skills they need in an effort to help fill the more than 2.3 million advanced manufacturing jobs in the U.S. These funds are crucial to helping us reach our goals."

Founded in 2008, Workshops for Warriors offers classes in Advanced CNC Manufacturing, CAD/CAM programming, advanced welding/fabrication and machinery repair. Between 2011 and 2016, Workshops for Warriors has trained and certified 321 veterans, with 1,223 nationally recognized third-party credentials. In 2015, 94 percent of the graduates obtained jobs in advanced manufacturing after completing the programs. The school solves two systemic economic issues: rebuilding America's advanced manufacturing infrastructure and providing a nationally scalable and repeatable model to train, certify and help place transitioning service members and veterans into advanced manufacturing careers.

"JPMorgan Chase is dedicated to promoting veteran employment, empowering veterans to succeed in small business and improving the financial security of vets, service members and their families," said Brian Page, West Region Head for JPMorgan Chase's Government, Healthcare, Higher Education and Not-For-Profit Banking Group. "We are honored to work with Workshops for Warriors as it helps our city's veterans build a solid foundation for the future."
