Helmets to Hardhats Chooses Qorvis Communications for 2018 Veterans Day Campaign

by | Nov 14, 2018

Helmets to Hardhats (H2H), a national nonprofit that connects transitioning service members to apprenticeship training and quality careers in the building and construction industry, is the latest client signed by Qorvis Communications. The public affairs firm will develop and execute a Veterans Day-focused communications campaign on behalf of H2H to raise awareness in the Armed Forces community of the career opportunities available to individuals who have served.

“Qorvis is honored to work with an organization whose sole mission is to empower our service members to succeed as they reenter the civilian workforce,” said Qorvis Communications Founder and President Michael Petruzzello. “Helmets to Hardhats has already helped nearly 30,000 veterans find quality careers in the unionized construction industry, and we look forward to helping them significantly grow that number.”

H2H connects National Guard, Reserve, retired and transitioning active-duty military members with participating trade organizations that conduct three to five year earn-while-you-learn apprenticeship training programs. And, because these apprenticeship programs are regulated and approved at both the federal and state levels, veterans can utilize their G.I. Bill benefits to supplement their incomes as they learn valuable skills and take part in on-the-job training.

“Helmets to Hardhats chose to partner with Qorvis because of the firm’s national nonprofit experience and its longstanding commitment to supporting both the military and the skilled trades,” said Helmets to Hardhats Executive Director Darrell Roberts.

Helmets to Hardhats is a program administered by the Center for Military Recruitment, Assessment, and Veterans Employment and is headquartered in our nation’s capital.
