FourBlock is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting returning service members in their transition from military service to meaningful civilian careers. After more than 10 years, our flagship Career Readiness Program is taught by corporate executives in major cities across the U.S. including Charlotte and now serves more than 600 transitioning veterans annually.
Our mission is to equip veterans and military spouses to successfully transition to meaningful civilian careers. Our vision is to build a national professional network where transitioning veterans and military spouses can connect locally and attain the skills, resources, and relationship-building opportunities necessary to reach their career potential.
In 2010, FourBlock started with an inaugural class of 16 transitioning veterans in New York City. Today, we have grown into a nationwide community of professionals eager to continue to make a difference in our communities.
Each year, we now welcome more than 600 new alumni from across the country. The FourBlock alumni community is now 3,500 strong and counting. Our alumni have been hired at more than 500 different companies across the country and around the world.
From leading organizations to launching innovative new ventures, FourBlock veterans are tackling mission critical goals at top companies through the power of the nationwide FourBlock community.
At the very core of our programs and content is relationship building. We help veterans build lasting professional connections. Everything we do supports the opportunity for a transitioning veteran to have a conversation with a hiring manager, so they both may learn from one another, discuss career opportunities, and begin to build a relationship that may lead to meaningful employment.
